This chapter reviews the accomplishments of the Head Start program. At the top of the list of Head Start's contributions is the fact that it was the trailblazer for our nation's huge investment in pre-school education. Besides inspiring so many states to mount pre-school programs for poor children, Head Start has had an impact on other nations. Head Start has also had a huge influence, on the author and on the field of child development, which goes beyond the generation of a large scientific literature on early intervention.

Keywords:   poor children, pre-school children, intervention programs, education programs, Head Start, education policy
