Early Life and Education
Education is an integral part of life. It entails developing new knowledge, abilities and attitudes so that individuals can become productive members of their society.
Early childhood education refers to the care and instruction of young children outside their home environment. This pedagogical concept is founded on the idea that children learn better when teachers are actively involved in their development.
In America, the Head Start program was first implemented in the 1960s and quickly gained popularity, particularly among low-income families. Educators utilized this platform to foster children’s social and emotional development as they prepared them for school.
Direct instruction was the result, a fast-paced teaching method focused on specific topics that is directed by the teacher rather than parents.

A household is considered poor if its net worth falls below one-fourth of the federal poverty line when adjusted for family size and composition (Brandolini, Magri, and Smeeding 2010; Gibson-Davis et al. 2021).
