To make Head Start studies more accessible and to inform concerned audiences about major findings in the research, this volume provides a review of 124 Head Start studies published since 1970 and presents an annotated bibliography containing 1,448 entries on Head Start research undertaken since 1965.

Included in the review are tables indicating results of longitudinal and follow-up Head Start studies showing Head Start/control comparisons through second grade by measure and through high school by measure. The annotated bibliography is arranged mainly in alphabetical order by principal author. Co-author, title, and subject indexes are included. Many of the entries are available through the ERIC system.
