In this Research Note, the McCormick Center released new workforce data on the qualifications of Head Start and Early Head Start administrators at the grantee and site levels. These findings are important since little is known about the qualifications of on-site leaders in Head Start and Early Head Start programs. While Head Start programs are supported by well-developed systems, administrators—especially site-level managers—must possess the knowledge and skills to implement effective systems and lead individuals for sustained programmatic success. The Spring 2016 Research Note summarizes findings of a study of Head Start and Early Head Start administrators in Illinois.
