03/31/2014

Although children with native-born mothers were consistently more likely to be enrolled in preschool than children with foreign-born mothers, the gap narrowed somewhat from a 15-percentage point difference in 1995 to a ten-percentage point difference in 2011 (Figure 12; CPS Table 1.3).  Preschool enrollment for children with foreign-born mothers increased from 34 to 42 percent, and for children with native-born mothers, from 49 to 52 percent.
