A Review of Head Start Research Since 1970. Head Start Evaluation, Synthesis and Utilization Project.
This review attempts to summarize the major findings concerning the impact of Head Start that have been reported in the literature published since 1970, and to communicate these results to policymakers, researchers, Head Start program staff, and others. The review constitutes an update of "A Review of Head Start Research since 1969 and an Annotated Bibliography" assembled by the George Washington University in 1975. The review is restricted to the time period 1970-1983 intentionally, so that it would focus on Head Start as it operated under the aegis of the performance standards and program improvements made in the early 1970's. Findings related to the impact of Head Start are reported as follows: (1) cognitive development of children, (2) emotional and social development of children, (3) health of children, (4) families of participating children; and (5) the community.
