Education for All.
Ilfeld, Ellen M., Ed.
Coordinator's Notebook, n14 1993-94
In 1990, the World Conference on Education for All renewed the world's commitment to ensuring the rights of all people to education and knowledge. This theme issue of the "Coordinator's Notebook" introduces the Education for All initiative and surveys what has been done (and needs to be done) to address the education needs of young children and their families. The notebook first presents excerpts from the World Declaration on Education for All and the Framework for Action to Meet Basic Learning Needs, both adopted at the Conference. "Educating Young Children: A Broader Vision" (John Bennett) then evaluates the response to the Education for All initiative, and identifies further types of intervention needed; a bibliography is included. "Creating the Foundation Stones for Education for All" (Robert G. Myers) summarizes actions to date and those scheduled for the near future to promote world-wide attention to early childhood and family development. "Case Studies" (Judith L. Evans and Robert G. Myers) presents programs showing how governments can support early childhood programming, with three programs developed in direct response to local needs and expanded with available resources. The three programs are a family day care model in Venezuela, a preschool program in Kenya, and a parent education program in the Philippines. (TM)
