A new study by the Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel has found that participation in early childhood care and education frameworks  contributes to the academic achievements of young children in later years. This was found to be especially true for children from weaker socioeconomic backgrounds. KAN reporter Naomi Segal heard more about the study – and implications of the coronavirus pandemic disruption to educational frameworks, from Liora Bowers, a researcher in the early childhood initiative, and the Taub Center Chief Financial and Operating Officer.
