Sustaining the Boost: Longitudinal Impacts of the Boston Prekindergarten Program and Variation in Impacts

Primary Investigator(s): Christina Weiland

Funding Agency: U.S. Department of Education/IES

Period: 7/1/2014 - ongoing

In “Sustaining the Boost: Longitudinal Impacts of the Boston Prekindergarten Program and Variation in Impacts,” we propose a retrospective efficacy study of the short- and medium-term impacts of the Boston public prekindergarten program on key child academic and school progress outcomes. We also propose to examine cross-school variation in the persistence of child-level impacts and predictors of variation in these impacts using new and innovative methodology that has not yet been applied to public prekindergarten programs.
