Head Start: Another Massive Waste of Money

"Head Start" has been operative for as long as I can remember, which is a really long time. It was an LBJ initiative.

It's spent a LOT of dollars.

For nothing.

"The study found virtually no lasting effects to participation in Head Start," he writes. Nearly every academic benefit it conferred on children relative to those who weren't in Head Start but were in every other way similar was gone by the end of first grade.

P-Mac has all the rest here.
