The Riverfront Times investigates violations by the Human Development Corp. (HDC), a private nonprofit agency that administers Head Start in the city of St. Louis. "HDC has been accepting more than $11 million per year from the federal government to serve about 2,500 children but has yet to come even close to serving that many." Since 1997, the US Department of Health and Human Services has been investigating HDC's problems which include its sagging attendance, questionable purchases with federal money and "inability to oversee its finances."
