The Effects of Tulsa’s Universal Pre-K Program on the Educational Life Trajectories of a Diverse Student Body

Grant Year: 2022

William Gormley, Sara Anderson, Katherine Magnuson, and Amy Claessens will examine whether early childhood educational programs can contribute to social mobility by improving high school academic achievement and rates of college enrollment. They will analyze a variety of educational and criminal justice system data for young people who were enrolled in Tulsa’s universal pre-kindergarten program in 2006. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers and policy briefs.
