Preschool Breakthrough: What Works in Early Childhood Education.
This special report is designed to help school personnel prepare for the estimated five million youngsters to be enrolled in preschool programs by 1975. It includes a review of the new philosophies and old controversies of early childhood education, research results from private and public sources, a guide to federal funding policy and clues to the ferment in state and local communities. As an aid to those seeking to set up programs of their own, descriptions of various projects that have demonstrated success in increasing the achievement of young children are presented. The pamphlet concludes with a listing of sources from which additional information about major trends in preschool education may be obtained. (Author/WY)
