This report describes how New Jersey became a national leader in early education with the state's reforms from preschool to third grade.

This summary report on the initial phase of NIEER?s New Mexico PreKstudy finds significantly improved language, literacy, and math for the children who attended over children who did not and an estimated rate of return is $5 for every $1 invested.

Dorothy Strickland, NIEER Distinguished Research Fellow, testified before the House Education and Labor Subcommittee on early literacy learning experiences, focusing on what is known, what is needed, how to improve and what is needed from the federal government to ensure high quality literacy learning experiences for young children that research shows can help reduce grade retention, improve graduation rates and enhance productivity in adult life.

NIEER's multi-year study shows that children who attended New Mexico PreK scored higher in early math, language, and literacy than children who did not attend the program.

This paper reviews the international evidence on the benefits of early childhood interventions.
