Analyzed Chicago Longitudinal Study data to determine correlates of preschool participation. Found that participation was associated with significantly higher levels of school readiness, achievement, and educational attainment, and with lower rates of child maltreatment, juvenile delinquency, special education placement, and grade retention. Calculated that every dollar invested in preschool returned $7.14 to society at large. Recommended greater investments in programs with elements similar to those of the Child-Parent Centers.
