Betting on our future: Results from pre-K survey on lottery funding, effects of COVID-19

Share
Description:

Georgia’s Pre-Kindergarten Program (Georgia’s Pre-K) is one of the first state-funded universal pre-K programs in the nation. The program is offered to all 4-year-olds in the state (making it universal) but contains yearly “caps” on enrollment subject to appropriation. High-quality early learning programs can help students do well in elementary school and have been shown to improve school grades and social-emotional skills for years following. While policymakers in Georgia are rightly concerned with the program’s ability to prepare students for Kindergarten, there is also little available evidence on whether the state is providing an adequate dollar amount to the program to, for instance, increase enrollment. This report summarizes a survey of pre-K program directors on the expenses they incur, their perspectives on the adequacy of state funds to meet student needs and the effects of COVID-19.
