New Report Evaluates Pre-K Programs in Forty U.S. Cities

A newly-released report has found that while cities have been expanding availability of publicly-funded pre-K to young children, many of these programs are not meeting the standards of high-quality needed to produce the most impact.

The report, entitled “Pre-K in American Cities: Quality and Access Grow, but Cities are Missing Opportunities to Create Lasting Benefits for their Youngest Learners,” was written by CityHealth and the National Institute for Early Education Research at the Graduate School of Education, Rutgers University.
