The National Institute for Early Education Research recently ranked Georgia’s Pre-K Program as one of the top state programs in the nation based on quality standards, teacher qualifications and enrollment.
According to data compiled by Voices for Georgia’s Children, a nonprofit child policy and advocacy organization, approximately 25 percent of Georgia’s children under the age of 6 live at or below the poverty level. The state continues to lag behind the nation in reading achievement and high school graduation.
