There’s a hidden, but important lesson from the findings in the Tennessee pre-K study

Analysis has demonstrated both equally small and prolonged-time period rewards of superior-top quality pre-K. So it was stunning when a current research found that little ones who attended Tennessee’s state-run voluntary pre-K method basically executed a little even worse on sixth grade assessments and behavioral measures than little ones who had been hold out-outlined for the program.

This one study has renewed the debate about the value of common pre-K and the need to have for continued investments in early studying.

Nonetheless, as noted by scientists and advocates alike, there are several reasons why the study’s conclusions aren’t actually so bleak — and they all emphasize the will need to accumulate much better information so we can understand what truly operates.
