Promoting the Development of African American Male Children: An Examination of the Benefits of the Early Head Start Program

The University of Maryland will use the Early Head Start (EHS) dataset to determine the effects of EHS programs on African American male children. Specifically, the study has three aims: (a) to examine whether there are differences in EHS impact on sub-groups of children defined by race and gender, (b) to identify particular child and family factors which may affect the likelihood of program impacts on African American male children, and (c) to examine which program characteristics potentially moderate the effect of EHS on African American male children. Overall, it is expected that the results from this study will add to the current literature regarding the benefits of early childhood programs for African American male children.
