The Hidden History of Head Start

This chapter discusses the status of the Head Start program under George W. Bush's administration. The Bush administration's stewardship of Head Start and several other children's programs including child care and health halted and even erased some of the progress it had taken many years to achieve. The 2007 Head Start Act corrected some of the problems created by the administration and held the intent to fix others and move the program forward again. At time of writing, President Obama has just begun his term and has proposed large new investments in Head Start, which he defends as investments in America's future.
