Another study has come out on pre K. This one claims to be different then the ones done in the past by the governor who set up the program. The past studies said that there was no noticeable difference in children after the second grade between kids who had pre k and those who did not.
This study is different.....or not. It claims wonderful results in children in grades K, one and two. After that no mention of results are made.
And one pass the buck comment by the person in charge of the study should send flags.
"The idea that the disadvantages these children have can be 'cured' by one year in pre-K and they will forever after do as well as their more advantaged peers is questionable. Their academic progress as they move forward will depend in large part to the experiences they have in kindergarten, first grade, and so on..."
The funds are for this one program that was sold as able to get lasting results. If it does not, then possibly those funds should be re allocated to programs that will work.
