The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life
Richard J. Herrnstein, Charles Murray
"A year later , the mandated executive agency, the Office of Economic Opportunity, launched Project Head Start, a program intended to break the cycle of poverty by targeting preschool children in poor families." - Richard J. Herrnstein, Charles Murray, The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (1994)
Hey! I was in Head Start. Don't know about this 'poverty' business. If memory serves, I learned how to crawl upside down like a spider and what happens when Matt pulls the fire alarm. Good times. Supposedly any cognitive benefits have since faded.
