Personality and Interviewing

by Steven Petersen

"Study after study shows that the earlier a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road," Obama said in a recent speech about early childhood education.

Although the White House plan for universal pre-K has been touted as a program that would give every American child earlier access to education, it primarily focuses on delivering that service to highly disadvantaged children.
