A new study shows Georgia’s lottery-funded pre-kindergarten program is paying off, with fewer students being held back a grade, dropping out of school and landing in special education classes. The study, released Tuesday by the nonprofit Southern Education Foundation Inc., puts a dollar value on the most noticeable of the trends — 10,000 fewer students on average are having to repeat the same grade each year. The report estimates the net savings at $35.6 million in 2010 and an additional net savings of $212.9 million over the next six calendar years.
