On June 20, I’m speaking at an event at Melbourne Business School on early childhood intervention, along with Frank Oberklaid, Sue Richardson, and Ross Homel. Details over the fold.
STARTING EARLY: Should we be investing more in early childhood?
hosted by Melbourne Business School, Centre for Business and Public Policy
Royal Children’s Hospital, Centre for Community Child Health
You are invited to join us for an interactive panel seminar to hear four leading specialists in economics, childhood research and criminology address key questions for public policy in early childhood development.
The panel will canvass issues such as:
â€¢ How can public policy be best directed to encourage optimal outcomes in early childhood development?
â€¢ Should compulsory schooling be extended to 3-5 year olds?
â€¢ Where are the likely social and economic returns for higher public investment in early childhood development ?Â
