The push for pre-k in Pennsylvania crafts students ready for kindergarten and sets the stage for success. Successful students turn into productive members of society. Pre-k investments save taxpayer dollars by reducing the need for special education and remedial instruction. You would think these benefits would make high quality pre-k an easy investment, but Pennsylvania ranks 18th out of 30 states that make public investments in high-quality pre-k.
