High-Quality Preschool Programs Found to Improve Adult Status.
Weikart, David
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v3 n1 p117-20 Feb 1996
The longitudinal High Scope/Perry Preschool Study of 123 African Americans in poverty and at high risk of school failure interviewed 95% of participants at age 27. Profiles indicate that participants had fewer criminal arrests, higher earnings and property wealth, and greater commitment to marriage than nonparticipants, suggesting significant lasting effects of high-quality preschool programs.
