Report: Pre-K helps MoCo improve literacy

By Washington Post editors

A report released today praises Montgomery County's early childhood program, saying it has helped the county improve literacy and narrow performance gaps between racial and ethnic groups.

The report, released on the day that Montgomery County returns to school, was put together by the Foundation for Child Development and the Pew Center on the States.

"The innovative strategy of starting with pre-k and pointing all compasses toward college and career readiness is paying off for kids and families in Montgomery County,” said Marci Young, project director of Pre-K Now, part of the Pew Center on the States, in a statement.
