Closing the Vocabulary Gap in Chicago Pre-K on PBS NewsHour Tonight
Children raised in poverty typically enter kindergarten less prepared than their middle-income peers and often never catch up. Preschool: Closing the Vocabulary Gap, featured on tonight's PBS NewsHour, takes a look at what educators in Chicago preschools are doing to help children in poverty overcome the achievement gap.
