Conor Williams’s review of “From Preschool to Prosperity” in The Washington Monthly

Review is here, cross-posted at New America’s Ed Central. Conor Williams is a Senior Researcher in the Early Education Inititiative at the New America Foundation.

“Bartik bridges the distance between accessibility and expertise. From Preschool to Prosperity is supremely organized and readable, but it’s also jammed full of useful information. It’s the book for anyone who’s been following New York City’s pre-K expansion…and wants to know why it’s such a big deal. It’s the book for anyone who’s heard the … stats on the return on investing in pre-K…and finds themselves wondering just how researchers come up with those numbers.”
