Focus Forum 2017
Emerging Issues Forum 2018
The Institute for Emerging Issues is excited to introduce its newest program of work –kidonomics: The Economics of Early Childhood Investment. This work will examine the connections between early childhood investments, North Carolina’s economy, and the development of a well-trained workforce. Kicking off a unique, two-year concentration on this important issue, we invite you to mark your calendars for a special Emerging Issues “Focus Forum” on this topic, next February 7, 2017, which will culminate in a grand finale Emerging Issues Forum on February 5-6, 2018.
During the next two years, IEI will focus on the economics of early childhood investment. Preparing our youth today for the skills they will need tomorrow is crucial for their success as adults. But when exactly should we begin preparing our kids? Are there wider, long-term impacts on the economy and to a skilled workforce?
