Bill Would Improve Early Ed, Head Start

Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA) introduces the Caring Start Act (H.R.2217), which is aimed at helping children from birth to age 5 who experience higher barriers to learning due to chronic stress or trauma outside of school.

It would amend the Head Start Act to promote trauma-informed practices, age-appropriate positive behavioral intervention and support, services for young children who have experienced trauma or toxic stress, and improved coordination between Head Start agencies and other programs that serve very young children.
