From the Back Cover:

Everybody likes Head Start. The only clear-cut victory of the War on Poverty, it enjoys bipartisan support and is seen as a linchpin in the Clinton administration's plans to reinvigorate our educational system. Now, one of the founders of Head Start reveals the program's tumultuous history and suggests how it can be improved to ensure that our schools benefit all our children.

From Library Journal:

As one of its earliest champions, Zigler has been intimately involved with Head Start throughout its 27-year history. Aided by Muenchow, executive director of Florida Children's Forum, he details the national politics of this educational program from Lyndon Johnson to George Bush. He dispassionately acknowledges the many critics and challenges the program faced, such as the much-quoted Coleman report ( Equality of Educational Opportunity , U.S. Office of Education, 1966) and the Nixon administration's attempt to eliminate it altogether. Why, then, would Head Start ultimately become the nation's most successful educational and social experiment? Zigler credits its success to its comprehensive health and family support services, its "two-generational assault on poverty." Asserting that Head Start should now be recognized as a full partner in Welfare Reform, he proposes an expanded program for the future. As child care still remains a massive problem in the United States, the report and its recommendations deserve serious consideration by all segments of society. Extensive notes on original source material are included. For all education and social sciences collections.
