New Study Ranks Maryland Third Best for Early Education

The finance website WalletHub ranks Maryland as the third best state for the availability of quality pre-K education in the nation.

According to the National Institute for Early Education Research, students enrolled in full-day pre-K programs do better on math and literacy tests than their peers who attend only partial day preschool. In addition, those who attend pre-K programs have been shown to have less risk of future crime than those who do not.

WalletHub compared the 50 states across three key areas, including access, quality, and resources and economic support.

Maryland ranked 10th for access to quality pre-K programs, third for quality, and 22nd for resources and economic support.

The other states in the top five spots include Nebraska, District of Columbia, Vermont, and Arkansas.

Data used to create this ranking were collected from the National Institute for Early Education Research, Educaton Commission of the States and The National Woman’s Law Center.
