Investing in Children

Properly designed and integrated Child Development Accounts (CDAs) can have lasting, positive effects on children's educational development and can improve their long-term economic outcomes. While much discussion of CDAs (also known as CSAs or Children's Savings Accounts; the terms are interchangeable) treats the accounts in isolation, Investing in Children: Child Development Accounts as an Early Childhood Intervention argues that, to be most effective, CDAs should be situated within the broader context of other early childhood interventions like pre-K and Head Start.
