2015 Bennett Lecture in Prevention Science

Work from the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network on the inclusion of early
childhood development in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, successor to
the Millennium Development Goals) will be presented along with an update on the SDG
process. The bulk of this lecture will then focus on evidence regarding mechanisms for
improving the quality of early childhood education at scale, from studies in Chile, the U.S., and
low- and middle-income countries.
