NEPC Review: Assessing Proposals for Preschool and Kindergarten: Essential Information for Parents, Taxpayers and Policymakers
This report reviews studies and accounts of early childhood programs and presents an argument against universal preschool and all-day kindergarten programs. The report concludes that public investment in preschool education programs is unnecessary, and that preschool programs and full-day kindergarten do not have lasting educational effects on children.
