Mathematica is conducting this study to provide new information on preschool special education programs and inform policymakers and educators about promising practices to improve outcomes for preschool children with disabilities.
A high-quality education is critical to the future of our nation's children and our country's economic success, but many lack access to effective teachers and schools. Mathematica studies public and private efforts to improve the quality of education and competitiveness of our workforce. Our work helps advance the science of education research and further discourse about education reform.
