This chapter focuses on how President Carter never received the credit he deserved for his Head Start actions. The program's budget nearly doubled during his 4 years in office, and his White House staff included many knowledgeable program advocates. Yet the Head Start community primarily remembers Carter as the president who tried to destroy Head Start by moving it to the Department of Education.
