(Undated) -- The National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University is publishing its report on the state of pre-school in the United States in 2017. The report indicates Rhode Island is one of three states, along with Alabama and Michigan, that met all ten of the institute's new benchmarks for minimum state preschool quality standards. While the report notes Rhode Island was one of 12 states that had programs enrolling less than ten percent of four-year-olds in the 2016-2017 school year, it also shows that the state now enrolls more than a thousand children. That's an increase of more than two-hundred percent in the two years since Rhode Island began receiving federal preschool development grants.
