So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. ~Matthew 20:16

A New Head Start

Posted: 2014-05-18

Arizona Freedom Alliance on May 15, 2014 The federal program doesn’t work — it’s time to distribute its funds to the states and let them experiment.By Mike Lee & Matt SalmonThomas Jefferson once wrote that “the preservation of freedom and happiness” depends upon “the diffusion of knowledge among the people.” President Jefferson rightly understood that education is the cornerstone of a free and prosperous society — a principle that is as true today as it was in the late 18th century. Indeed, in our high-tech, globalized economy, a solid education is the great equalizer of opportunity and an essential ingredient for upward economic mobility.Yet at the same time, education costs are spiraling out of control, straining state and local budgets. And with all the mandates handed down from the federal government, it is becoming increasingly difficult for communities to provide high-quality educational opportunities for all children. Reform is needed now more than ever.There is much work to be done at every stage of learning, from pre-kindergarten to post-graduate. One area where reform is most overdue: early-childhood education for the nation’s most underprivileged children.Of the 69 federal early-childhood education and child-care programs, Head Start, which was designed in 1965 to specifically assist underprivileged children, is one of the oldest. And with an operating budget of more than $8 billion per year, it’s also the most expensive. Unfortunately, despite the best of intentions, 50 years of empirical data has shown that Head Start has consistently failed to fulfill its promise of improving educational outcomes. According to a 2012 study by President Obama’s own Department of Health and Human Services — published the Friday before Christmas to avoid attention — whatever benefits children gain through the program disappear by the time they reach the third grade.Read more on National Review Onlinehttp://arizonafreedomalliance.ning.com/group/watching-schools/forum/topic/show?id=6399857%3ATopic%3A47160&xg_source=msg
