Pre-K and not Prison

There are a million and one reasons why all children should receive a quality Pre-K education. Another reason, a strong early childhood education might make you less likely to commit crimes. Fight Crime: Invest In Kids is a nonprofit group that fights for quality early childhood education. They argue that studies show that low-income children who get quality early education lead to, among other things, children who are less likely to commit crimes. Besides advocating for early childhood education they support after-school programs, working with children already involved in crime, and working with abused and neglected children.
