Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed several evaluations of the Even Start Family Literacy Program's effectiveness, focusing on how the Even Start program has performed in terms of preparing children for school.

GAO noted that: (1) the results of the evaluations did not provide a definitive determination of Even Start's effect on children's school readiness; and (2) although the results indicate that children's scores on school readiness tests increased during the time that they participated in Even Start, children not participating in Even Start achieved similar gains in test scores, at least in part because of their participation in other early childhood programs.
