That Big Head Start Study You’ve Been Reading About

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 16:11

America has spent $100 billion and change on Head Start, and now there’s a major study on just how effective it has been. Kathleen Sebelius says,

“Research clearly shows that Head Start positively impacts the school readiness of low-income children.”

So that’s why you’ve been reading all about it in the press.

What? You say you haven’t?

Hmm. I wonder why not.

Umm, yes Ms. Secretary, but the same research shows those effects vanish by the end of first grade. I guess that information is on a need-to-not-know basis. The public needs to not know about it or the administration hasn’t got a snowball’s chance in Kauai of getting American tax payers to throw another $100 billion or so at government pre-K, as President Obama is so very keen to do.
