The Productive Pre-K Question

U.S. News & World Report -- Over the next decade, states, school districts and local communities are going to continue to expand access to preschool and other early childhood programs. This work will be slow and inconsistent, but the direction is clear. The question is whether the resulting programs will be any good.
