Report finds that benefits of Head Start fade by 3rd grade
I've been spending a lot of time lately trying to answer what seems like a fairly simple question: Does Head Start work? The latest report from the federal government seems to suggest it doesn't. The report says that virtually all of the positive benefits from Head Start fade by 3rd grade. You can read the report for yourself. And stay tuned, because there are other reports that give a different answer. We'll be exploring those in an upcoming special on Jan. 24th.
