This brief describes these disparities in absenteeism in the US,…

Fuhs, Mary Wagner; Nesbitt, Kimberly Turner; Jackson, Hannah – Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, 2018
Investments in preschool programs for children from disadvantaged backgrounds have historically been supported by research showing that these programs help children build school readiness skills and narrow the income-achievement gap. However, results from recent studies of the links between preschool participation and increases in school readiness…
