Funding for Pre-K and K will impact teacher evaluations

Foundation for Chid Development

"Counting Kids and Tracking Funds in Pre-K and Kindergarten: Falling Short at the Local Level"

 

"Not all states require or fund full-day kindergarten. What’s more, current early childhood data makes it difficult to discern within many states how many schools have half- or full-day kindergarten."


"Such information is of particular concern as states usher in not only the Common Core State Standards, but also changes to teacher evaluation."

 

“As teachers begin to alter their instruction to match the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten, their instruction may differ greatly depending on whether their students are attending a half or a full day of school.”
