A bill before Congress proposes to move the Head Start program under the Department of Education.

The bill would take the federal funding from the local programs and hand it over to the state's school systems.

Head Start officials fear this would mean a drastic cut in funding for their programs.

No word on when Congress will vote on the bill.
