Mackintosh, Helen K.; And Others
This brochure reflects information concerning the findings of staff members of the Elementary Schools Organization Section of the Office of Education in their visits to 16 cities (Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, New Haven, New York, Oakland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, San Diego, and Washington, D.C.), from programs with disadvantaged primary children. The brochure, it is held, will assist schools in interpreting the needs of such children and in programing constructively for them. The program emphases were on developing verbal ability, achieving understanding of self and others, broadening environmental understanding, increasing intellectual understanding, and cultivating emotional and cultural resources. As requirements for such programs, the brochure discusses the characteristics of teachers for the disadvantaged; parent-school relationships; supporting services such as school health specialist, home visitor, psychological services, early childhood education specialist, and parent-consultant; and facilities and equipment required. A select bibliography on the education of the disadvantaged child and a list of organizations having publications dealing with nursery-school kindergarten education are also provided in the brochure.
