Early childhood education for low-income students: A review of the evidence and benefit-cost analysis
Kay, Noa A., January, 2014
(Document No. 14-01-2201). Olympia: Washington State Institute for Public Policy.

The 2013 Washington State Legislature directed the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to review "the research evidence on components of successful early education program strategies" for low-income children. In this report, we present findings from our analysis of early childhood education (ECE) research. We conducted this analysis by reviewing all credible evaluation studies from the United States and elsewhere. We systematically analyzed the studies to estimate whether various approaches to ECE have a cause-and-effect relationship with outcomes for low-income students. We then calculated whether the long-term monetary benefits of ECE investments outweigh the costs. Research on ECE programs serving low-income children can provide insight on the effectiveness of Washington's own program, the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP). The 2013 Legislature also directed WSIPP to "conduct a comprehensive retrospective outcome evaluation and return on investment analysis" of ECEAP. That evaluation will be completed by December 2014. The full legislative direction to WSIPP is in Exhibit 1 (next page). In this report, we first describe WSIPP's approach to systematic research reviews and benefit-cost analysis. We then highlight our findings on the average effectiveness of ECE for low-income children. (author abstract)

Full-day kindergarten: A review of the evidence and benefit-cost analysis
Kay, Noa A., January, 2014
(Document No. 14-01-2202). Olympia: Washington State Institute for Public Policy.

The Washington State legislature directed the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to develop "a repository of research and evaluations of the cost-benefits of various K-12 educational programs and services." In this report, we analyze a K?12 policy question: do the long-term benefits of full-day kindergarten (in comparison with half-day) outweigh the costs? We researched this question by reviewing all credible evaluation studies from the United States and elsewhere. We systematically analyzed the studies to estimate whether full-day kindergarten has a cause-and-effect relationship with student outcomes. We then calculated whether the long-term monetary benefits of full-day kindergarten exceed the operating and capital costs. In this report, we describe our research approach and highlight our findings on full-day kindergarten. An appendix provides technical details. (author abstract)

Long-term effects of Head Start on low-income children
Ludwig, Jens, June, 2008
Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 1136(), 257-268

A growing body of research suggests that the first few years of life are a particularly promising time to intervene in the lives of low-income children, although the long-term effects on children of the U.S. government's primary early childhood program - Head Start - remains the topic of debate. In this article we review what is known about Head Start and argue that the program is likely to generate benefits to participants and society as a whole that are large enough to justify the program's costs. Although in principle there could be more beneficial ways of deploying Head Start resources, the benefits of such changes remain uncertain and there is some downside risk. (author abstract)
