Two-Generation Programs to Fight Poverty

Check this out: Alana Semuels, A Different Approach to Breaking the Cycle of Poverty, Atlantic, Dec. 24, 2014.  Program offers pre-school for kids and job help for parents.

The Tweet that led me to this highlighted a quotation from the article:
“We hear that all the time, people say, ‘That sounds expensive, all that work for little kids . . . My response is, it’s much more expensive to have to intervene, whether you’re talking about rehab or prison.”
-- Leah Austin, deputy director of the Atlanta Civic Site

Yes. What she said.
