McCarthy, Patricia Bowens; Morote, Elsa-Sofia
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v10 n3 p232-239 2009
This article reports the investigation of the extent to which US preschool federal funding (Head Start) and the preschool enrollment of African American males (aged three to five) affected the high school graduation rates of this population (aged 14 to 19). The authors found that a link exists between preschool enrollment and the high school graduation rate of this population. They also found a link between Head Start funding and the high school graduation rate for this group. (Contains 5 tables.)
