Yasmina Vinci, nhsa Executive Director, responds to The Washington Times September 5th Editorial, “Head Start: An $8 billion, ineffective political sacred cow.”

Excerpt: “The writers’ shallow opinion is apparently rooted in an archaic assumption that Head Start is simply “expensive day care.” Certainly, readers would have appreciated a more transparent and honest narrative of Head Start’s approach to early learning: rigorous comprehensive services that include home visits, health screenings and improved nutrition. This approach provides a foundation for vulnerable children, stabilizing the family and home, and ensuring that the entire family is prepared and invested in their own lifelong success.”


"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
