The best, worst states in America for early education in 2022: report


Some U.S. states apparently have better education systems for young children than others.

That’s according to a report from WalletHub, which recently found the states with the best and worst early education systems. 

For its report, WalletHub compared all 50 states and Washington, D.C., based on access to early childhood education, the quality of early education, resources and economic support.
