Head Start

I am disappointed that Ron Paul didn't just come out and say, "Yes, we should zero out Head Start." It sounds like one of those good, liberal, untouchable programs but the brute reality is this:

There is no evidence that Head Start provides any long term educational benefit for the children that enroll in the program. All measurable improvements disappear within a few years. Sad but true.

Head Start is an excellent example of how liberals refuse to let reality interfere with their good intentions. Ron Paul should know better.
