Preschool for All: Investing in a Productive and Just Society

This report argues that all children should have access to high-quality prekindergarten classes, offered by a variety of providers, for all children whose parents want them to participate. It argues that it is time to make good on the commitment to provide early learning opportunities for all. The report calls for a new compact between the state and federal governments to make free, high-quality early education available and to help close the achievement gap. This strong federal and state partnership would expand access to high-quality learning opportunities and link providers and programs into coherent state-based education systems.
