Toledo, Ohio is engaged in a multi-year process to provide high-quality preschool to all children in Toledo. Brodsky Research is assisting with the evaluation and data component of the project. Andrew Brodsky has been involved in this process since late 2018, when a group of stakeholders in Toledo coalesced to bring preschool to the city. The project is currently in a demonstration phase, enrolling underserved children in high-quality providers in select neighborhoods in the city.
Brodsky Research is contributing to the following components of the project:
- Providing a picture of the needs among young children and families in the community.
- Estimating costs to provide high-quality preschool.
- Providing formative evaluation to guide program improvement and expansion.
- Providing summative evaluation to provide accountability and measure progress toward program goals.
