more on poverty and inequality

On the subject of poverty and inequality, here's a good article about the value of early childhood education in reducing them.

The article pretty much echos the conclusions that I reached (using the same data, largely) from a research project last year on the role of the education system in reducing or perpetuating poverty and inequality.

The intensive pre-school program sounds great. It would be sweet if a democrat would package this with a school choice agenda. Let the poor have access to some of the same recourse the wealthy have when they have incompetents teaching their kids.
