My latest (with @KalMunis, Bradshaw, Rabinowitz, and Ialongo) is out today at Prevention Science.

Using a RCT, we show that high quality childhood education programs increase voter turnout in adulthood *a lot*.

This new article conceptually replicates/extends my previously published 2017 article at the @apsrjournal that shows that helping kids develop their "noncognitive" skills has long term payoffs in terms of increasing adult voter turnout.

Our work contributes to research on political socialization and reinforces childhood as a critical period in helping young people become active voters.
