Effects of high-quality preschool on early literacy and mathematics skills: A regression-discontinuity approach


The current study was designed to answer two research questions: 1) Do children who have completed one year of LAUP preschool show an advantage in math and language performance, as compared to children of the same age who are beginning their year of preschool?, and 2) What is the size of this effect; that is, how much learning occurs as the result of one year of LAUP preschool?
