Report: Iowa preschool program kids lose gains
DES MOINES (AP) — A state report says early academic gains by children in Iowa’s preschool program have been lost by third grade.
The report says the preschool students made modest gains on a school readiness assessment, but the program impact vanishes later in reading and mathematics.
Iowa Education Department Director Jason Glass says the study echoes a 2012 report that shows children in the federal Head Start program don’t retain long-lasting increases in achievement.
