Yvette Sanchez Fuentes stepped down last week as the director of the federal Head Start program. Before her appointment in October 2009, the office had gone without a permanent director for two years. A replacement has not been named.

During Ms. Sanchez Fuentes’ tenure, Head Start instituted a policy requiring providers to compete for the first time for federal funds. The first round of competition ended with only a handful of new providers.
