Pre-K Cop - Sheriff C.T. Woody speaks out for expanded preschool

I have often thought of preschool education and police work as two aspects of a spectrum of interventions to help troubled people in my community. It looks like the sheriff of our fair city, C.T. Woody agrees. He has written an OP-Ed supporting funding of preschool education in our community and across the state. He has written, citing two studies:

What does early education have to do with crime prevention? Plenty.

Law enforcement leaders know from experience -- and research proves -- that high-quality early education programs cut crime.

This is the type of logic that should bring about real changes in our state. I only hope that our General Assembly agrees.

What is the evidence and where are the studies that this is true?
