Something Better for My Children : In Something Better for My Children, award-winning journalist Kay Mills takes you inside Head Start, from its inception in 1965 to the obstacles and challenges it faces today. And she does something that hasn't been done before: She reveals the human side of this controversial program that has endured for over thirty years, surviving hard times, racism, and even violence. Mills spent two years visiting Head Start programs across the nation, from a migrant labor camp in rural California to an Indian reservation in Montana, from the racially divided deep South to a center in Minneapolis where parents are also teachers. Her in-depth encounters provide an illuminating look at what Head Start has accomplished, and what it has yet to achieve. You will hear the stories of those whose lives Head Start has affected most - the children themselves, whose destinies are so powerfully shaped by this crucial program. In Mills' inspiring firsthand accounts, these intensely personal chronicles become the success stories of men and women whose lives have been dramatically changed by their involvement with Head Start.
