Head Start: Creating Better Citizens

Here's an informative article about Head Start and its value to the children and families it serves.

Head Start not only prepares children for academic and behavioral success but also helps parents create a contributing, functional family unit.

This is why the move by the Bush administration to cut funds for Head Start is such a bad idea. Eliminating Head Start is not just meanspirited. Funds targeted for Head Start actually help children - and their parents - become better people and citizens. The value of that is priceless.

We spend so much on programs that destroy. It is time to make our first priority programs that alleviate suffering and create a stronger nation through cultivating the strengh of our people.

He shall save the children of the needy. Psalm 72:4

Even if we do not do so out of the goodness of our hearts, we must do so because it is simply in our own best interest to create more responsible, educated and committed citizens.
