The Head Start Experience. ERIC Digest.
Mallory, Nancy J.; Goldsmith, Nancy A.
Head Start has been successful because it includes comprehensive services, parent involvement and family support, a commitment to meeting local needs, training and technical assistance support, and a collaborative approach. This ERIC Digest briefly describes each of these components. Discussion concludes by noting that Head Start must take more responsibility for sharing information about its successes and failures and its staff's desire to be an important part of the human services team in the community. Sources of additional information are cited. (RH)
