With the simple Blueprint for Zero to Five formula, we've made the connection. It's important to invest in early childhood development because the rate of return is so high, and the stakes couldn't be higher. The future success of our families and our communities, and the economic vitality of our state will depend on the young children of today. From higher education to manufacturing, small businesses to NASA, Alabama must develop the human capital and lay the foundation needed to drive our economy and fuel our prosperity by investing in our most precious natural resource... Alabama's young children.
