Introduction : No Small Matter

In Ageing in the Asia-Pacific Regions: Issues and Policies, edited by David Phillips, Routledge Press, New York. There is increasing evidence that investments in the nutritional, cognitive, and socio-emotional development of young children have high payoffs. This presents evidence that one core reason is that by the time a child is old enough to attend school, there is already a wide disparity in cognitive skills and in emotional and behavioural development among children from households of different socioeconomic backgrounds. Frankel, University of Chicago Press, Chicago. This volume is an important contribution to these efforts. Abstract: Even with increased emphasis on basic education for all, many individuals fail to achieve basic skills to succeed in life. World Bank Economic Review, 23 3 : 371-398.
