The Controversy of Head Start

Extracts from this document...


Cecil J. Kim Econ 110 Jones December 8, 2004 Final Presentation paper The Controversy of Head Start Ever since the creation and implementation of the Head Start program in 1965, there has always been controversy over the program's effectiveness. Much of the controversy stems over the self-reporting of evidence that the National Head Start Association provides, both to the government and to the public, along with the actual impact Head Start has on the children that participate in this controversial program.
