- Equal From The Start: Promoting Educational Opportunity for All Preschool Children – Learning from the French Experience
June 14, 2010
This report focuses attention on how France, building on a strong foundation of a universal pre-elementary school system, is providing earlier access and more resources to low-income and immigrant children who are at risk for educational underachievement by investing additional resources in écoles maternelles located in education priority zones or ZEPs.
