The sequester cuts have cost 57,000 lost seats in Head Start classrooms. The shutdown is costing an additional 19,000 lost seats in 11 states as 23 progams lost access to their funding October 1.
Head Start and other non-defense discretionary programs — only 3.4% of the Federal budget — are not the cause of our growing debt. Congress and the Administration need to act now to restore funding for our at-risk children. Our nation’s budget simply can not be balanced on the backs of poor children.
