The Start of Head Start
Neugebauer, Roger
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n193 p20-21 May-Jun 2010
The creation of the Head Start program occurred at break-neck speed with many dramatic turns and many colorful players. No one tells the story better than Edward Zigler in "Head Start: The Inside Story of America's Most Successful Educational Experiment"--a detailed and personal, behind the scenes look at the program's inception. From this resource and many other documents of the time, the author has pulled together this short list of individuals who contributed to the creation of Head Start: Lyndon Johnson, Sargent Shriver, Robert Cook, Julius Richmond, Jule Sugarman, Pancho Mansera, Jimmy Carter, and Edward Zigler.
