Sequestration cuts are causing havoc on programs which help our children across the nation. More than 70,000 children from poor families are being eliminated from the gold-standard Head Start program, which was created in 1964 to help break the cycle of poverty, providing low income children ages 3-5 and their families with a vehicle to better their lives. Here in Boston, sequestration cuts will cause 200 – 300 low income children to be cut from the program this fall. On this edition of Centro, we’ll you what’s happening with the Boston Head Start program. WBZ’s Yadires Nova-Salcedo talks with ABCD’s Director of Head Start & Children’s Services, Yvette Rodriguez. Tune in!
