Contents Introduction -- Adequacy and efficiency of preschool education in California -- Design options for state preschool systems -- Recommendations for preschool policy in California -- Conclusions.
Summary The California Preschool Study examined gaps in school readiness and achievement in the early grades among California children and the potential for high-quality preschool to close those gaps, the use of early care and education (ECE) services and their quality, and the system of publicly funded ECE programs for three- and four-year-olds. This analysis integrates the results from the prior studies and makes recommendations for preschool policy.
