Gaylor, E., Spiker, D., Williamson, C., & Ferguson, K. (2011). Saint Paul Early Childhood Scholarship evaluation: Final evaluation report–2008-2011. Menlo Park, CA: SRI International.
This is the fourth and final report about the evaluation of the pilot of the Saint Paul Early Childhood Scholarship Program. In this report, data are presented about how the scholarship model was implemented and what was learned about its effects on children, families, early childhood education programs, and the targeted community (i.e., the targeted pilot areas in Saint Paul, Minnesota). A major focus of this report is the kindergarten child outcomes, both within the scholarship participants and comparing scholarship children to children who did not receive a scholarship, but who were low-income and who were entering kindergarten at the same time as the scholarship children (i.e., 2010 or 2011).
