Excerpt: An early childhood education study is recommending publicly funded preschool education for all Canadian kids beginning at age two. The report - authored by Margaret McCain, Dr. Fraser Mustard, who died last week, and Kerry McCuaig - is the third in a trio of reports on the state of early childhood learning. Their study provides the social, economic and scientific rationale for public investment in young children and recommends that all children be entitled to an early education from age two. The Early Years Study 3 - released Tuesday in Toronto and Montreal - says getting kids into education earlier would benefit the children and the country.
