Title of Project: 
The Haves and the Have-Nots Children: An Exploration of Financial Mechanisms for Pre-K Education
Advisor: Rui Pereira
Honors Department: Public Policy

My honors research aims not only to provide a case for the establishment of universal pre-K education system in the US, but also to explore the current political constraints in place and analyze actual funding mechanisms in implementing such initiative. My final product of the honors project will allow policymakers to effectively weigh the benefits and costs attached to the value of early childhood education; it will also create a financial guide for all those affected by the project.
