How can Head Start, the federal government’s largest early childhood education program, improve results and generate a greater return on public investment? A new report, “Moneyball for Head Start: Using Data, Evidence, and Evaluation to Improve Outcomes for Children and Families,” answers that question, outlining 9 concrete steps Congress and the Administration can take now to improve outcomes for children and families. We discussed these proposed next steps and the role the federal government should play in implementing them at the Dirksen Senate Building.
