Preschools of Thought: Breaking Down the Benefits of Early Childhood Education [Infographic]

The benefits of early childhood education (ECE) are widely discussed and even enjoy strong endorsement from President Barack Obama.

But, do you know which regions of the U.S. are investing the most in ECE? Do you know how ECE affects graduation rates? Or how about the impact ECE has on crime? In fact, 80 percent of children who attend preschool graduate high school, compared to 60 percent of kids who didn't graduate, according to a Highscope Perry Preschool Study.

Check out this infographic to learn more about the benefits of early childhood education. When you're finished tell us in the comments if you did, or would, put your kids in preschool.
