Mississippi First Releases Second Pre-K Report

Early Childhood, Literacy

Mississippi First released the second report in its ground-breaking series, The State of Pre-K in Mississippi, which focuses on pre-K access and quality in Mississippi.

The report — The State of Pre-K in Mississippi (2014-2015) — updates Mississippi First’s 2011-2012 report on public pre-K and expands it to include information about licensed childcare centers serving 4-year-old children.

This report is the first attempting to quantify pre-K access — whether public or private — in every Mississippi community. Additionally, the report presents information about the quality of each school district program according to national benchmarks and includes programmatic information about all licensed childcare centers serving four-year-old children.
