REMI luncheons are held each month at Metro Center, 700 12th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington, D.C. 20005.
REMI cordially invites you to join us for the next REMI DC policy luncheon on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., when REMI Economist Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D. will discuss an analysis of the potential economic impacts from early childhood development programs.
Human capital plays a central role in fostering economic growth, and the expansion of human capital is significantly influenced by high-quality early childhood development programs.
For this presentation, Dr. Evangelakis will review an analysis of one such program conducted by the University Research Center of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and the Graduate Center for the Study of Early Learning at the University of Mississippi.
The researchers estimated the state-level economic impacts of implementing a public early childhood development program in Mississippi that focused on children up to 36 months of age. Dr. Evangelakis will consider their findings and describe the methodologies they used to conduct this analysis.REGISTER FOR THIS LUNCHEON [menu_3_description] => Array (  => Array ( [speakers_name] => Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D. [speakers_designation] => REMI [speakers_image] => Array ( [ID] => 1779 [id] => 1779 [title] => peter-img [filename] => peter-img.jpg [filesize] => 43218 [url] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img.jpg [link] => https://www.remi.com/?attachment_id=1779 [alt] => [author] => 2 [description] => [caption] => [name] => peter-img [status] => inherit [uploaded_to] => 1770 [date] => 2018-01-09 09:25:01 [modified] => 2019-01-02 17:33:01 [menu_order] => 0 [mime_type] => image/jpeg [type] => image [subtype] => jpeg [icon] => https://www.remi.com/wp-includes/images/media/default.png [width] => 246 [height] => 329 [sizes] => Array ( [thumbnail] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img-150x150.jpg [thumbnail-width] => 150 [thumbnail-height] => 150 [medium] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img-224x300.jpg [medium-width] => 224 [medium-height] => 300 [medium_large] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img.jpg [medium_large-width] => 246 [medium_large-height] => 329 [large] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img.jpg [large-width] => 246 [large-height] => 329 [1536x1536] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img.jpg [1536x1536-width] => 246 [1536x1536-height] => 329 [2048x2048] => https://www.remi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/peter-img.jpg [2048x2048-width] => 246 [2048x2048-height] => 329 ) ) [speakers_description] =>
