"Using professional wisdom and real-life examples, Washington's analysis stands as a tribute to the children, families, and employees of Head Start and an inspiration for all of us to work to make this great program better." -- Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology and Director, Rush Center in Child Development and Social Policy at Yale University
