Standardized Childhood: The Political and Cultural Struggle over Early Education
by Dr. Bruce Fuller, 2007, p. xvi
As Libby Sholes, leader of the moderate California council of Churches, put it, "We are moving so fast in the institutionalization of children. We're taking kids away from their parents. Government's deciding what's best for our kids."

Standardized Childhood: The Political and Cultural Struggle over Early Education
by Dr. Bruce Fuller, 2007,
p. 191-193
In discussing (the famous Perry Preschool experiment in Ypsilanti, Michigan's) place in the preschool movement's history...we emphasized the small number of families that participated. For instance, a 20 percent difference in any outcome actually means that about 10 Perry graduates took a positive pathway, compared to the path taken by members of the control group. The other nagging worry with the Perry results is that, once we get past the (glowing) press releases and summaries, we find that some differences are not statistically significant, apply only to girls, not boys, or fade away.

Standardized Childhood: The Political and Cultural Struggle over Early Education
by Dr. Bruce Fuller, 2007, p. 195
Overall, when we consider Perry (Preschool in Ypsilanti, Michigan) or Abecedarian, these economic analyses help only a little in estimating the (alleged) benefits of massive preschool programs. It's like looking at the cognitive acumen or earnings of Harvard* graduates, and then using this rate of return to justify building more community colleges. The benefits realized by these small, model programs are not generalizable to apply to mass preschool systems.
*Harvard University is an elite private university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S., and a member of the Ivy League.

Standardized Childhood: The Political and Cultural Struggle over Early Education
by Dr. Bruce Fuller, 2007, p. 211
Belsky's analysis posited a linear or continuous relationship between preschool exposure and behavioral outcomes: spending more hours yields steady declines in social behavior...
He reported that children attending preschool at high levels--for thirty or more hours per week...exhibited higher rates of externalizing behavior than other children...
Given that all observers agreed, Belsky's finding does not appear to be an artifact of biased reporting.
