Rate this:
And with your courage and with your compassion and your desire, we will build a Great Society. It is a society where no child will go unfed, and no youngster will go unschooled. Newly elected President Lyndon B. Johnson was on the verge of formalizing The Great Society when he said these words. It was a set of domestic programs with the main goal of the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. Some Great Society proposals were stalled initiatives from John F. Kennedy's New Frontier. Readers will be intrigued by the history of this bold plan.

Chapter 8: Head Start Was Based on the Belief That Early Education Can Eradicate Poverty
So, if we all have superior education, those areas beyond our control will suddenly be in our control?!?!?!?!?
How very absurd a motivation? That's akin to saying that if someone trains as a soldier all their life, they will be impervious to a nuke or atom bomb dropped on their heads?!?!?!?
Head Start was based upon the belief that early education would help in later education, which studies validate!
