PreK-3rd: Putting Full-Day Kindergarten in the Middle

June 1, 2010


Kristie Kauerz

This brief presents strong rationales for moving Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK) from the margins to the middle of the education reform debate. Kauerz recommends that we not only improve the quality of FDK programs, but also that we establish FDK as an integral part of all 21st century PreK through post-secondary education reform efforts.
