Report Shows Dearth of Publicly Funded Pre-K in PA

Nov 28, 2013

A report on the accessibility of early education programs for young children shows the commonwealth has some work to do.

Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, an education advocacy group, has released its 2013 study on school “readiness” in the commonwealth.

It finds less than 16 percent of three- and four-year-olds have access to publicly-funded pre-kindergarten.

The remaining roughly 84 percent of children in the commonwealth may have access to private early education.

More than twenty years after the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) became law, a new report finds that about 1 in 20 Pennsylvania children is still uninsured.

According to the second annual State of Children’s Healthcare in Pennsylvania report by the Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, or PPC, nearly 148,000 children in the state lack health insurance.
