The Rationale for Expanding Public Education to Include Preschool-Aged Children

January 17, 2019

Excerpt: "We all want our children to have the best chance at a good life. Fifty years of research shows participation in a high-quality preschool program benefits children’s development and reduces gaps at school entry. Early education’s advantages carry forward, showing a powerful effect on children’s later learning, behavior and health outcomes. When the majority of children regularly participate in quality early education, outcomes for the overall population improve."
