The 2021 State of Pre-K briefs are focused on assessing access and quality across the state.

Each pre-K brief shows strong evidence that the collaborative program is the path to expanding pre-K quality statewide. Collaboratives are in communities that resemble the state economically and demographically. They are outperforming non collaborative public school pre-K. In conjunction with the briefs, Mississippi First will publish an online data dashboard that will provide pre-K data from the 2017-2018 school year. The first two of three briefs in the 2021 State of Pre-K series focus on child outcomes and teacher qualifications.
