    POOR KIDS Here’s another story on universal pre-K. It’s ugly down in Georgia:

    Children spend six and a half hours a day in class…Since the program started, the Department of Early Childhood Education at Georgia State University has conducted frequent evaluations of it. The results have concluded that in several measures of academic and social achievement, kindergarteners who completed Georgia’s pre-k program surpassed those who did not have the preschool experience. One study found that pre-k children scored more than three months higher on achievement tests—including the Iowa Test of Basic Skills—than children who weren’t in such programs.

    Three whole months. And it only cost $128M. What a deal!
