On September 19, 2022 – this Fox News Article first broke the story about millions of dollars being wasted each year by a fraudulent and corrupt grant program called “Preschool Promise” run by the Oregon Department of Education – Early Learning Division.
The Preschool Promise (PSP) program is intended to establish free, high-quality preschool options to low income Oregon families. We fully support the intent of the program, but do not support the execution and outcomes.
We put together two ways you can see the data & results for yourself: 1) an interactive dashboard that works on computers, tablets, or phones and 2) a Google spreadsheet you can view and download. We recommend the dashboard
The sources for the dashboard and spreadsheet came from:
- Preschool Promise & COVID-19 Childcare Stabilization data: ELD Public Records Requests
- PPP loan data: FederalPay.org
