April 26, 2021 Group Watch: Alabama’s First Class Pre-K Ranks No. 1

Governor Kay Ivey announced that the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) ranks Alabama First Class Pre-K as the nation’s highest quality state pre-kindergarten program for the 15th consecutive year. Each year since 2017, Alabama First Class Pre-K has received increased support from the Education Trust Fund as recommended by the governor and approved by the  legislature. Access to pre-k grew to more than 34 percent of four-year-olds in the state, while continuing to meet all 10 NIEER quality standard benchmarks in the 2019-2020 school year. Alabama leads the nation in ensuring quality while also expanding program access, even expanding during the pandemic. The state’s strong investment in teachers and continuous improvement will produce a lifetime of benefits for the state’s children and its taxpayers.
