Tennessee's Gold-Standard Preschool Not Effective After 2nd Grade

Via Education WeeK:

A report released Thursday shows the effectiveness of Tennessee's pre-kindergarten program diminishes after the second grade, but supporters say it still provides a valuable foundation that will help at-risk children succeed.

The report commissioned by the state comptroller's office reveals kindergarten students who participated in the pre-K program performed better academically than a group of those who didn't.

However, it shows that there is "little evidence that the unique effects of pre-K" last beyond second grade.

Education Week also reports that U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan says that Preschool is Key to Solving the Education Crisis. Who knew the education crisis was kindergarten readiness?
