Early education participation in CT among the highest in the country

Connecticut has more of 3- and 4-year olds attending preschool than every state except New Jersey, according to the College Board’s annual progress report.

While the state also ranks near the top in the percent of black and hispanic students having an early education, many more caucasian students have an early education.

Almost 10 percent of Connecticut’s 3- and 4-year olds attended state-funded programs during the 2009-10 school year.
