New Report Recommends Pre-K as School Turnaround Strategy

Recently, Pre-K Now released a report highlighting five districts where pre-K has been at the center of turnaround efforts: Whitley County, Ky.; Pittsburgh Public Schools; St. Charles, Mo.; Guilford County, N.C.; and Fresno County, Calif..

The report recommends that federal School Improvement Grants "explicitly include funding for comprehensive pre-IK-through-third-grade strategies." Current guidelines permit full-day kindergarten and pre-K to be strategies for "transformation" schools.
