Usually, but especially when resources are limited, good investments are those that are based on research about what really works and have promise for making a positive and long-term impact.  One of the state’s recent examples of a good investment is the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood (OEC).  Unfortunately, budget proposals recommend decreasing, and in some cases ending. this positive long-term investment in order to create short-term savings.

This is concerning and should be given serious thought. Budget cuts may be necessary but can we really afford the risks they post to our children? Children are our future, we are growing the next generation that we will depend on to make decisions in our lives when they reach adulthood and we cannot care for our selves. If we send them the message that these short- term savings are more important then their futures what can we expect in the long term when it their turn to make these life changing decisions?
