In an era of federal retrenchment, it is hard to imagine a vestige of the Great Society that not only has survived, but also thrived. Yet Head Start is just such a program. In the same period in which Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Medicaid, compensatory education, community services, and student loan programs have experienced drastic cutbacks, Head Start not only has been spared the budget cutter's axe, but actually has seen its budget expand.
