  1. Hi JoLynne,
    Firstly, thanks so much for all your helpful work in keeping parents, educators, reformers and innocent by-standers apprised of education issues in our area.
    Secondly, o anothernote, is there a link that goes to a story citing info about the low performing Head Start providers? The only link I got was to the page that just names the local grant recipient, but no ratings.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Pam. “Education Week” today published a blog post with some more background about the funding awards: http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/early_years/2013/07/head_start_announces_awardees_in_first-ever_grant_competition.html?cmp=SOC-SHR-TW This is part of Head Start’s attempt to allocate scarce resources in the wake of the Sequester. Instead of receiving indefinite grants, all programs must re-apply for funding every five years. http://eclkc.ohs.acf.hhs.gov/hslc/hs/grants/5-yr-cycle. This is the first round of required re-applications. In April, Head Start announced that of programs re-applying, 25 would lose funding, but that they would not announce the “winners” until early July. The link takes you to that list, which was just announced.
