Off to a Good Start with Even Start!
Fore, David A.
This document describes Even Start, a new federal family literacy program that combines early childhood education, parenting education, and adult literacy education. The program is based on the collaboration of community organizations and provides a new range of services. These services include family-centered education programs that involve parents and children in a cooperative effort to help parents become full partners in the education of their children. The program was first funded in 1989, and funding levels are increasing to match public interest. This document outlines the parameters of the program, including authorizing legislation, criteria for eligibility, the nature of services, funding, and an evaluation of the program. Appended are four references. (GLR)
