A study from Los Angeles Universal Preschool shows that students who attended its preschool programs demonstrated improved social and emotional skills and an increased readiness for kindergarten. English-language learners made the most progress, mostly closing a proficiency gap. Their gains surpassed those of English-speaking peers in some measures after just one school year. The programs, which are primarily funded by taxpayers, serve some 10,000 students in 325 schools.
