Struggling Navajo Head Start Program On Rebound - The Associated Press
The Navajo Nation's Head Start program has struggled for years to ensure children are safe, employees undergo background checks and it has qualified teachers. Now, it's on the rebound.
The federal government recently announced the tribe will receive a 5-year, non-competitive grant after fully passing reviews for the first time in decades.
Sharon Henderson-Singer, who oversees the program, says the tribe is required to meet some 2,800 standards.
