The Effectiveness of Preschool Education on Academic Achievement.
Johnson, Robbin B.
This study examined the impact of preschool education on the academic achievement of 100 third graders from May Community Academic Public School in Chicago, Illinois. The subjects were all minority students. A random sample of 30 students per group was selected from the 55 students who had received preschool education and the 45 who had not. The mathematics and reading results of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills were used as the achievement measure. Findings indicated that third graders who had preschool experience had significantly higher reading and mathematics achievement scores than third grades who had not had preschool education. (KDFB)
