Third Grade Follow-Up to the Head Start Impact Study: Final report [Executive summary]


Head Start has the ambitious mandate of improving educational and developmental outcomes for children from economically disadvantaged families. Head Start's mandate requires that it meet the needs of the whole child, including the cognitive, social-emotional, and health needs of children, and positively influence the parenting practices of their parents. This study examines the impacts of Head Start on these four domains and whether earlier impacts were sustained into 3rd grade. (author abstract)
