Children in Georgia's state-funded, universal pre-K program produced higher scores in language, literacy, and math than children who were not enrolled, and those not in the program scored at or below the national norm, a new study finds.

The report, released March 6, looked at outcomes for 1,200 children on teacher-administered evaluation and state exams, the report says, with 611 children having had experience in the pre-K program and 570 for whom services were not yet provided.
