This morning, CNN's Dan Simon profiled San Francisco's Kindergarten-to-College program (video below), set to roll out this fall, that will provide a college savings account for each kindergartner entering city public schools. More of NAF's coverage of Kindergarten-to-College is available here, here, and here.
The piece specifically cites research from the Center for Social Development at Washington University in St. Louis (around the 1:30 mark), indicating the increased likelihood of college attendance among youth who set aside money for higher education.
