Project Head Start 1968: The Development of a Program.
Office of Child Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This profile of Project Head Start as it was in 1968 is based on data compiled from Bureau of the Census surveys. The sample involved 5 percent of the children and their families in the full year program and 1 percent in summer Head Start. Approximately 1 out of every 4 classes in the full year and 1 out of every 20 classes in the summer program participated in this study. The report depicts the variety of children and their families being served, Head Start centers and their program components, and the characteristics of participating staff. Comments and recommendations have been built into the presentation of the data. A summary follows at the end of each section highlighting key aspects of the data considered relevant for program planning purposes. In the discussion of program components, reference is made to the program guidelines and activities to provide the reader with a framework for interpretation of the data. (Author/AJ)
