Georgia pre-schools are now ranked amongst the top in the nation. That's according to a report released Thursday by the National Institute for Early Education Research. The state was rated in the top three in excellence in pre-school programs. The report says Georgia offers preschoolers some of the most easily accessible and well funded programs in the nation. The study ranked states by the number of children in state funded preschools, the amount spent per preschooler, and a checklist of ten benchmarks programs.
