In Squandering America’s Future, Ochshorn offers a pioneering guide to the big issues in contemporary early childhood policy. Written in a lively, personal style, the book drives home the importance of the earliest years for developing human capital—the nation’s future. Her policy tales highlight the abject failure of the United States to support parents and early educators, the nation’s real wealth producers, and will inspire a new generation of leadership. With her 360-degree view on this urgent issue, Ochshorn boldly and clearly shows how early care and education is an issue of social justice and helping America compete on the world stage.
Susan Ochshorn is the founder of the consulting firm ECE PolicyWorks. A former journalist, Ochshorn blogs at the Huffington Post and ECE Policy Matters, the go-to place for early childhood teachers, those who train them, and the decision makers who determine their professional course.
