School districts and communities across the nation are doing a poor job of keeping track of how many children attend publicly funded preschool and kindergarten programs, leading to an inability to gauge whether those programs are meeting students' needs, according to an issue brief from the New America Foundation's Early Education Initiative.

And disparities in enrollment requirements, length of programs, and ages of enrolled children only add to the problem.
