President Obama has called on Congress again and again to help local state governments pay for high-quality preschool education – not just any early learning program, but quality learning that is offered at Head Start programs. This is not a new request. The call for high-quality education for children under the age of...

On the other hand, for many children who were unable to participate in the program due to Head Start budget cuts from the federal government, economic issues that have plagued our country in various regions and as the program...

Closures Still Happening Nationwide: Head Start Budget Issues Despite the fact that Sequestration is over and that funds have been allotted by the federal government in the most recent budget for the early childhood education program known as Head Start, closures are still happening nationwide.
