Letter to the Editor
Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

In response to the editorial “The Head Start ruse”: The Trib has stated a number of times in this and past editorials that Head Start children lose all they have gained by third grade. This brings to the surface several items.

Head Start children and families learn, grow and participate. Maybe the Trib should look at the schools where these children have supposedly lost in three years what they gained in two years in Head Start.

Our programs in Head Start are inclusive with families, concentrating on physical, mental and dental health along with nutrition and parental and family education. Without these supports and Head Start, children of low-income families have little to no chance to succeed.

Keep funding Head Start. The program is successful and I thank the Trib for pointing that out!
