Pre-K for PA’s new issue brief — developed by the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia — focuses on the impact that high-quality pre-k has on K-12 education. Schools spend significant time and money helping children who arrive in kindergarten behind to catch up. By getting children ready for school, academically and socially, pre-k can reduce those costs and increase student success.
This is a particularly important topic given Pennsylvania’s current efforts to ensure adequate and equitable funding for public education. While there are no simple solutions to the challenges Pennsylvania faces, this brief explores how pre-k benefits K-12 systems and improves outcomes for children.
