Improving Head Start for America s Children

As Head Start providers have known for years, and as we will hear today, early learning is a product of both cognitive and non-cognitive and, indeed, affective education.

Improving Head Start for America s Children

Head Start has served our most vulnerable children and families extremely well for 42 years, and, more recently, Early Head Start has done the same for infants and toddlers and their families. There are no more critical programs for our Nation's children than these because there are no years more critical to their development than the early ones. Head Start and Early Head Start provide high-quality comprehensive services to children and their families that help children develop cognitively and non-cognitively to enable them to succeed in school and in life. As Head Start providers have known for years, and as we will hear today, early learning is a product of both cognitive and non-cognitive and, indeed, affective education. That is why Head Start and Early Head Start are so successful, because they promote both and meet high standards in doing so.

Targeting Investments in Children

Meaningful differences in the everyday experiences of young American children. Baltimore: Brookes. Hart, K., and R. Schumacher. 2005. Making the case: Improving Head Start teacher qualifications requires increased investment.

Targeting Investments in Children

A substantial number of American children experience poverty: about 17 percent of those under the age of eighteen meet the government’s definition, and the proportion is even greater within minority groups. Childhood poverty can have lifelong effects, resulting in poor educational, labor market, and physical and mental health outcomes for adults. These problems have long been recognized, and there are numerous programs designed to alleviate or even eliminate poverty; as these programs compete for scarce resources, it is important to develop a clear view of their impact as tools for poverty alleviation. Targeting Investments in Children tackles the problem of evaluating these programs by examining them using a common metric: their impact on earnings in adulthood. The volume’s contributors explore a variety of issues, such as the effect of interventions targeted at children of different ages, and study a range of programs, including child care, after-school care, and drug prevention. The results will be invaluable to educational leaders and researchers as well as policy makers.
