Within two years, children who attended Head Start are indistinguishable from those who did not. Head Start is only valuable to politicians.

Many studies show that the benefit of Head Start is entirely erased by second grade. There are few exceptions. It matters regarding the life skills and education qualifications of your parents (and being blessed with good genes).
Professor Craig Frisby is on the faculty of University of Missouri's Department of Educational, School and Counseling Psychology. His most recent book is "Meeting the Psychoeducational Needs of Minority Students." It's a 662-page textbook covering a range of topics from multiculturalism and home and family influences to student testing and school discipline. There's no way full justice can be given to this excellent work in the space of this column, so I'll highlight a few valuable insights he makes that would help educators do a better job with minority students.

Quack multiculturalism is the name Frisby gives to the vision...
