Recently, the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) released the latest version of it’s annual State of Preschool Yearbook. The Yearbook gives a helpful snapshot of national and state-level funding and enrollment in state-funded pre-K programs, but perhaps its most important information is included within the 10 quality standards it uses as a yardstick for every pre-K program. And because NIEER has been producing its quality standards for over a decade, now, it’s not hard to see where states are improving — and where they haven’t made much progress at all.
