The Systemic Impacts of New York's Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program: A Response to Ackerman, Apple, Barnett, and Goffin
Morrissey, Taryn W.; Lekies, Kristi S.; Cochran, Moncrieff M.
Early Education and Development, v18 n4 p617-624 Nov 2007
We thank Debra J. Ackerman, Peggy L. Apple, W. Steven Barnett, and Stacie G. Goffin for their thoughtful commentaries on our article "Implementing New York's Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program: An Exploratory Study of Systemic Impacts" (this issue). Our response focuses on two main themes that emerged from the commentaries: (a) the generalizability of the sample and the study's methodological limitations and (b) protectionism of the existing early care and education system. In light of our study and the commentators' main points, we provide a set of policy recommendations for improving quality, accessibility, and affordability in the current early care and education system.
