Meeting the Expectations of No Child Left Behind: The Long-Term Effects of Head Start

What are the long-term effects of Head Start education on students’ cognitive development? What is head Start? How do long-term effects of Head Start connect to cognitive development? How are students, teachers, and parents affected by NCLB? How are meeting the expectations of NCLB correlated with Head Stat Programs? These are the questions being addressed in this paper. This paper consists of a review of the literature on these topics and concludes that Head Start prepares disadvantaged children for school. They have lower crime rates, better grades, and get better paying jobs than their fellow peers who did not attend Head Start. The paper concludes with recommendations for classroom practice related to NCLB.
