The performance differential associated with Pre-K is greatest for the most disadvantaged children – those from very poor families and those who qualified by virtue of both family income and limited English proficiency.

the professional’s sense of preparedness and IHE academic offerings.  Challenges facing both
students and institutions are analyzed, followed by recommendations for future research and
policy issues.his report discusses findings from the senior surveys conducted in the spring of 2012. Some notable student responses for the class of 2012 include when students first started thinking about college, how often during each week they studied for high school subjects, how well they felt their high school coursework prepared them for college coursework, and the types of colleges they applied to. This report also finds differences between 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 seniors’ responses on topics such as the amount of time spent working in paid employment outside of high school, their plans for postsecondary education, and their perceptions about the ease of applying for financial aid.
