This annual report examines access to, quality standards in, and resources devoted to state-funded preschool programs for 3- and 4-year-old children during the 2014-2015 school year. It is based on a survey of administrators of state-funded preschool programs. The report includes profiles for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and United States territories. Key findings show a modest increase in enrollment, with the most growth occurring among the 3-year old population. Six programs gained a quality standards benchmark, with West Virginia and Mississippi being the newest states to earn all ten benchmarks. State funding for pre-K increased, with two-thirds coming from New York, due largely from investments in New York City's full-day preschool. Four states reported reductions in spending. This yearbook survey includes, for the first time, two sets of supplemental questions that focus on states' policies to support pre-K dual language learners and the pre-K workforce.
