How to Make the Most Out of Early Childhood Education: Lessons from Michigan’s Transitional Kindergarten Program

Grant Year: 2022

Christina Weiland and Brian Jacob will examine whether early childhood education programs emphasizing school readiness can lead to improvements in math and reading skills after students enter primary school. They will evaluate a transitional kindergarten program offered to children in Michigan that places an enhanced focus on developing literacy and numeracy skills. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers.
