Second Generation Benefits Shown for Head Start Children

Second Generation Benefits Shown for Head Start Children

In a new study, researchers Andrew Barr of Texas A&M and Chloe Gibbs of Notre Dame have indicated that "Disadvantaged women who had access to Head Start seemed to benefit from the program in ways that helped their children down the line. Because of the program, crime in the second generation fell by 15 percentage points and high school graduation increased by 12 percentage points. Rates of teen parenthood dropped by nearly 9 percentage points and rates of college attendance rose by 17 percentage points."

For more information, please see Head Start Benefits Kids Who Attend — And Their Kids, Too at the First Five Year's Fund website.
