.... ~i ~ : i i Thursday, Sept. 18, 2003 -- The Gienvf/h Demotrat/Pathf'mder _. Page 9B By Senator Jay Rockefeller As students in West Virginia begin :another school year, Head Start -- a program that has successfully pre- pared low income pre-school chil- dren to succeed once they enter the public school system-- is in danger of being dismantled. Countless studies have shown that :hildren learn better when they are in good physical and mental health. The Head Start program improves early childhood development for over 900,000 low-income children every day by looking after their medical, dental, and mental health. Head Start also introduces children to literacy skills, teaches them about good nutri- tion and healthy lifestyles, and en- courages parents to be actively in- volved in their child's overall devel- opment. Unfortunately, the Bush Adminis- tration is pushing a plan to completely overhaul Head Start by shifting the full responsibility for the program to the states, even though the current structure has proven to be so success- ful in preparing poor children for suc- cess in school. In fact, a December 1999 Presiden- tion rating than any other government agency. In late July the Republican-led House of Representatives passed a bill that begins overhauling Head Start through a trial program in eight states - a trial program that will ultimately reduce federal funding while shifting the burden to already cash-s states. The weak economy of the past three years has resulted in record budget shortfalls in all 50 states, forcing them to make cuts in critical services. Now more than ever, state governments cannot afford to take on the full finan- cial burden of early childhood educa- tion and development programs. Rather than join the GOP effort to put Head Start at risk of withering on the vine, I am supporting a bill called the Head Start Readiness and Coordi- nation Act. This Senate bill is de- signed instead to improve Head Start by providing additional resources to cover more children, improving co- ordination at the state level, and in- creasing the quality and wages of Head Start teachers. The Democratic plan seeks to in- crease professional standards for Head iican bill, it provides hh funding nec- essary to make sure that these higher standards can be achieved. Unlike the measure passed by the House, our Senate bill would strengthen Head Start's ability to achieve its goals, rater than weaken it. The Bush Head Start~posal aban- dons a 3g-year-old commitment by the federal government to America's poorest children. It strips basic health protect_ions and educational opportu- nities from millions of children who would not have access to them wise. In the end, it will deny them a Head Start, and leave them behind. A child's early years are the time to nurture good growth and develop- ment, and prevent minor health prob- lems from becoming the kind of ma- jor health concerns that can hinder a child's ability to learn. America has great expectations for our youngest generations. Every parent in West Virginia, re- gardless of income, wants our tod- dlers to have a fair chance to grow into healthy, well-adjusted and successful students. 1 believe we should build on the successes of Head Start, not take it %lrAI~EY' 1995 RED CHEVY SILVERADO 4X4 . 454 ~MG | NqE * STANDARD HgPEi~t TRA ~SMI~,~S ION All , F,E~--filIC W~N~VS AND DOOM I~M~I~ C~ Iq.~ Y~ - t.ONG BED WITH I~D LINER 2000 GRAY TOYOTA S COROLLA RF~AR SPOLIER . 4~C'Y L E2~G I NX , AC~O .
