Top New Mexico Brass Say Investment in Early Learning Cuts Crime

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO – (August 26, 2010) New Mexico State Police Chief Faron Segotta and Santa Fe Police Chief Aric Wheeler today released a research report showing that investing more in voluntary high-quality pre-kindergarten programs not only reduces crime over the long run but also saves millions of dollars in the state’s education budget in the short term. The report will document that investments in pre-k programs can reduce the need for special education placements and other K-12 education expenses when pre-k children advance to later grades.
