CEHD Director James Heckman, Associate Director Alison Baulos, and Research Associate Jin Zhou have contributed a chapter to the recently published book, The Scale-Up Effect in Early Childhood and Public Policy: Why Interventions Lose Impact at Scale and What We Can Do About It. The book, edited by John List, Dana Suskind, and Lauren Supplee, combines theoretical and empirical work across disciplines to explore what threatens and what enables scalability in early childhood programs. In his chapter, Professor Heckman and co-authors Alison Baulos, Jin Zhou and Bei Liu discuss parental investment and skill formation. They investigate how effective early childhood programs are at enhancing parent-child interaction, with a focus on the China REACH program.
