Pre-K as School Turnaround Strategy
Buenafe, Anthony Q.
Pew Center on the States
Both state and local school systems, recognizing the strong and growing evidence of pre-kindergarten's effectiveness in closing achievement gaps, are implementing early learning programs as part of their education reform efforts. In low-performing districts, pre-k has emerged as a promising turnaround strategy, reaching children before they become low-achieving middle and high school students. This issue brief from Pre-K Now highlights how investing limited funds in proven early education programs can raise student achievement and improve school performance. (Contains 3 footnotes and 39 endnotes.)
