Fact-checking Sure Start

Channel 4’s FactCheck has taken a look at the conflicting stories about Sure Start, and delivers the following verdict:
Tony Blair's comments are a reasonable reflection of the findings of government-sponsored research into Sure Start. But he's probably guilty of overstating the effects of Sure Start. It's a long-term programme, and the truth is, we won't know how well it works for a generation. Like David Cameron's speech and, in fact, much discussion of Sure Start, his remarks are potentially misleading because they don't make this important point.
It's worth reading the whole thing because it pulls together the various strands of research and discussion.
