    According to Pax World and The National Head Start Association more than 90% of Americans support Head Start in its current incarnation. I find this difficult to believe. In fact, I’d be surprised if 90% of Americans have ever even heard of Head Start. The press release doesn’t give me a lot of confidence in their survey, either. The one question they released seems a bit slanted:

    “With state budget problems, it is not a good time to turn Head Start over to the states.”

    They do include a helpful link to the full survey findings. There you’ll find a PowerPoint presentation of the survey results. Scroll down to the “Questionnaire” section and you’ll find… nothing. Not a single question. Do you think they may be trying to hide something?

    Wow 90%!! Even if that figure was cut in half that’s way more than I heard that know who is running for president as a Dem. Or can even name some presidents as in Jay Leno’s Jaywalking bits.

    Aren’t statistics grand??? You can get so many difference answers from the data & all of them can be right at the same time(wrong depending upon what the original question was) Knowing the right question to ask—that’s the tricky part HAHA)
