Great Start Readiness Program State Evaluation

Michigan's Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is a state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children with factors that place them at risk for educational failure. The program provides high-quality academic and social-emotional experiences that prepare Michigan children for kindergarten.

The team of researchers at Michigan State University is conducting a longitudinal evaluation of the GSRP. The goals are to support data-informed decision making and provide scientific evidence of the impacts of the state’s investment in GSRP.
