March 2010 Education Matters: Head Start Lags Behind
posted by: Colin | March 22, 2010, 06:30 PM   

The March 2010 issue of Education Matters (now available for non-members to read and download) includes an article about a recent study of the federal Head Start program, "Head Start Lags Behind." The study reveals "few sustained benefits" for the students, despite the program costing $7 billion per year. In fact, the results are even less promising when, as the article's author, Lindsey Burke notes, it becomes clear the Department of Health and Human Services study used less rigorous standards when measuring data.


It is unfortunate that such an ambitious program is showing such little lasting gain, particularly during a time of massive federal deficits.
