The Business Case
Pre-k provides a strong return on investment for our state's future.
In fact, every $1 invested in high-quality pre-k saves taxpayers up to $7. Pre-k results in savings by reducing the need for remedial and special education, welfare, and criminal justice services, according to a well-documented body of economic and program research.
