LA 4 Longitudinal Study

CABL Study: Long-term Educational Benefits Associated with Participation in LA 4 Pre-K Program

The LA 4 Longitudinal High School Outcomes Study provides the first-ever set of findings that a statewide public Pre-K Program can help promote long-term benefits for students beyond the elementary and middle school grades.

Although decades of research has shown that high-quality preschool education can have a significant impact on school readiness and student achievement in the early years, less was known about the possible benefits through high school.

The LA 4 study found that there were positive long-term benefits associated with student participation in LA 4 compared to students with no access to publicly-funded Pre-K.
