A study found that students who had the most effective kindergarten teachers went on to attend college in higher numbers and earned more money as adults. Previous studies based on test scores have shown that the effects of good kindergarten teachers fade eventually, but this study showed that students who had the best teachers had better adult outcomes. The researchers calculated that, based on additional earnings for one class full of students, the worth of a good kindergarten teacher could be $320,000 a year.
