Publisher/Think Tank - Reason Foundation
This report reviews studies and accounts of early childhood programs and presents an argument against universal pre-school and all-day kindergarten programs.
Reviewer(s) - W. Steven Barnett, Rutgers University
Barnett’s review finds that though some of the report’s findings have merit, the overall report, “…misleads the reader, relying on distortions, selective citation of research and inconsistent use of standards for quality research.”
