Empowerment and Education: Civil Rights, Expert-Advocates, and Parent Politics in Head Start, 1964-1980.
Kagan, Josh
Teachers College Record, v104 n3 p516-62 Apr 2002
Examines how Head Start has survived over time, exploring the coalition that emerged between civil rights activists and intellectuals and tracing Head Start's development out of the emerging academic interest in compensatory education for cultural deprivation and the New Left's desire to build a movement emphasizing civil rights and community action. The debate over parent role in education is discussed. (SM)
