The Effect of Preschool Education on Academic Achievement of At Risk Children.
Anderson, Brenda
This paper reviews the literature on the effects of preschool attendance on academic success in elementary school and reports on a study designed to investigate the effect of preschool education on the academic achievement of at-risk, minority-group kindergarten children. The Test of Basic Experiences (TOBE) was administered at the beginning of the school year to 30 kindergartners who had attended preschool and a control group of 30 who had not. A comparison of the test results found a statistically significant difference between the achievement of the children who had attended preschool and the children who had not.
