You are correct, but it points out the folly of any public enterprise. Government undertakings of any kind are always influenced more by politics than by what really needs to be done. Thus, ineffective programs like Head Start are continued for decades despite repeated studies showing that the benefits disappear after a few years. This is one of many arguments in favor of smaller, much smaller, government, especially at the national level.
