A new report revisits Carnegie Corporation of New York grantee the Brookline Early Education Project (BEEP), which existed from 1973 to 1981 and was the nation’s first health and developmental program sponsored by a public school and open to children from birth to three years in adjacent urban and suburban communities. Results of a 25-year follow-up study, conducted between 1998 and 2001, show the potential of high-quality early intervention programs to level the playing field and lead to measurable improvements in participants’ school performance and adult life choices—saving taxpayers’ money over time.
