Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Head Start Program. Jones reviews the history of the program. Jones' report includes footage of Lyndon Johnson (former US President) giving a speech. Jones notes that Head Start in Boston serves over 2,000 children and is run by Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD). Jones interviews Marie Galvin (Director, ABCD Head Start), Bertha Glenn (parent) and Gloria Heckstall (parent) about the program. Galvin talks about the need for more funding for the program. Jones notes that Glenn and Heckstall sent their children through the program and are now working for Head Start. Jones notes that statistics show that Head Start students are less likely to drop out of school, to repeat grades in school, to become teenage parents or to serve time in prison. Jones interviews Antoinette Sequiera (sophomore, Harvard University) about how she benefited from the program. Jones notes that Head Start advocates are lobbying for more funding because only one of five children eligible for the program is able to enroll. Jones' report is accompanied by footage of preschool children and their teachers in the Head Start program. This tape includes additional footage of preschool children and their teachers in the Head Start program.
