The Current State of Scientific Knowledge on Pre-Kindergarten Effects


The report begins with a concise description of the prekindergarten landscape in America today, authored by Ajay Chaudry and Rupa Ditta. A core group consisting of the four organizers (Dodge, Haskins, Lipsey, and Phillips) and five others (Daphna Bassok, Greg Duncan, Mark Dynarski, Katherine Magnuson, and Chris Weiland) took in all available information, reached consensus on the six major conclusions that form the basis for this report, and drafted the Consensus Statement summarizing the major findings. Subsequent topical chapters, commissioned and authored by individual scholars, offer insights to assist policymakers in reaching decisions and provide fodder for future scholarly inquiry.
