This work studies the impact of Boston Public Schools’ (BPS) public preschool program using data on more than 4,000 preschool applicants from 1997 to 2003. The study leverages the randomization embedded in the BPS preschool lottery-based assignment process to compare the outcomes of students who won a preschool seat to students whose random lottery number was not high enough to win a seat. The study combines data from Boston Public Schools, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the National Student Clearinghouse. (author abstract)
