The New York Times reports:
A recent review found that 10 major social programs had been rigorously evaluated over the past two decades, using the scientific gold standard of random assignment. Only one of the 10 — Early Head Start, for infants, toddlers pregnant women — was a clear success. Yet all 10 still exist, and largely in their original form.

By the way, MCOE's Early Head Start program was recently reviewed and received many accolades for its effectiveness. Good Job to all of our EHS staff!
