In her new role as a private citizen and potential presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the renamed Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation announced on Friday a new initiative to promote early childhood education.
"New research shows that what happens here [in a child's home] during the first five years of your child's life will make a difference for the rest of his or her life," Clinton says of the home in a video announcing "Too Small to Fail."
According to its website, the initiative is designed "to promote new research on the science of children’s brain development, early learning and early health." And it plans to "help parents, businesses and communities identify specific actions ... that they can take to improve the lives of young children."
The decision to put childhood development ahead of a 2016 presidential race seemingly rebrands Clinton as someone focused on domestic issues, not just on international relations.
