A Diverse System Delivers for Pre-K: Lessons Learned in New York State. Pre-K Now Research Series
Holcomb, Betty
Pre-K Now
Today, policymakers with an interest in school success no longer debate why states should provide pre-kindergarten; that case has been made successfully to voters, educators, and researchers. Instead, policymakers now wrestle with how to get the job done. Increasingly, they turn to what those in the pre-k field call "diverse" or "mixed" delivery, which uses both community-based and school sites to provide pre-k services. This report examines the experience of one state--New York--using a diverse system to deliver pre-k services and provides lessons for other states as they build and expand their pre-k programs. An appendix includes: "Key Steps on New York's Path to Diverse Delivery of Pre-k Services". (Contains 43 endnotes.)
