Pre-Kindergarten in the South: Preserving the Region's Comparative Advantage in Education. Update
Southern Education Foundation
This Southern Education Foundation (SEF) report warns Southern states against endangering critical, hard-earned gains in early childhood education--the South's most effective innovation in public education--as state legislatures in the region consider substantial cuts to education programs. The SEF report reviews how the South continues to lead the nation in offering high-quality state-funded pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) to 20 percent of the region's three- and four-year-olds--double the rate of the rest of the nation. The SEF report also finds that more than half the states with the nation's highest Pre-K quality standards are in the South. Pre-K Enrollment Rates are appended. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
