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.”
