This chapter describes events during the late 1960s and early 1970s that came within a breath of expanding and joining Head Start to a national child care system. This system would have been a giant leap toward meeting the child care needs not only of poor children but of all children of working parents in America. Many Head Start advocates were not particularly enthusiastic about the program becoming a relatively small part of a much larger combined effort, and they were unhappy with the idea of allowing wealthier parents to join and potentially wrest control from the poor families.
