Public prekindergarten programs operating in the states have the potential to help children succeed in school, but they face significant challenges, concludes a report from the Santa Monica, Calif.-based RAND Corp.

Those challenges include making sure children have equal access to services, finding well-trained teachers, and blending funds from various sources, the report says.

Among other recommendations, the report calls for building stronger relationships among K-12 schools, community-based prekindergarten centers, and Head Start providers in order to reach more children.
