Study links pre-school to academic success

null Researchers have been tracking 3,000 children since the age of 3. Those children are now 10 and the standardized test scores of those who attended pre-school tended to be higher than those who did not.

The study's findings showed the pre-school benefit held up regardless of economic status of the children.

The authors say their findings point to the benefits of nations such as the U.S. establishing universal pre-school programs.
