New research on benefits of diversity in pre-k education

Thursday March 1, 2012

The Century Foundation has released new research, using data from 11 states, that shows improved math and language skills for students in socioeconomically diverse preschool settings. This research supports the Sheff Movement’s call for Governor Malloy to promote integrated preschool program, rather than keeping low income children in separate pre-k programs. Our magnet schools in Hartford have demonstrated that integrated preschool is feasible and effective.
