Pre-K 4 SA
Pre-K 4 SA is an investment in the children — and the future — of San Antonio. Children who attend high quality Pre-K programs do better in school from the first day of kindergarten through their college years. Research shows that they have higher test scores, need less special education, graduate from high school at substantially higher rates and they are more likely to attend college.
At a time when nearly 60 percent of all jobs require more than a high school education, far too many young people in San Antonio are dropping out of high school. San Antonio’s Mayor and City Council, CEOs, school superintendents and teachers agree that early childhood education is the best way to give our kids the tools to succeed in the 21st-century job market.
The program will provide full-day Pre-K to more than 20,000 children, provide high quality training for Pre-K teachers at school districts across the city and require significant involvement from parents. Pre-K 4 SA will cost the average San Antonio household less than $8 per year, or 65 cents per month. And for every $1 invested in Pre-K, San Antonio will get at least $3 back. Pre-K is one of the most cost-effective investments that can be made in education.
