Head Start Study Suggests Minimal Benefits (2005)http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4697531...If you search for "Head Start study" you will find a few studies on the subject, both positive and negative.-------------My anecdotal opinion is that while Head Start may provide some benefits to poor children, the lack of involvement of the poor parents has a far greater impact. My wife teaches high school at an inner city, majority-minority school and of the 150 or so students she has, typically less than 20 parents show up for parent teacher conferences.When I went to my son's kindergarden graduation, we had almost 100% parent participation - and that was during the work day. Which of the above two events is more important?My son is in a different school system than the one in which my wife teaches.
