Nurseries in Cross-Cultural Education. Progress Report.
Frederick Burk Foundation for Education, San Francisco, CA.; San Francisco State Coll., CA.
A 5-year project which focuses upon the processes necessary for initiation and implementation of a cross-cultural nursery school is at its midpoint in operation, with project nurseries having been established and presently operating in the San Francisco area. The family dwellings from which children are drawn consist of approximately equally divided middle-income cooperatively owned housing development units, public housing units, and individual dwellings. The racial composition of the initial child sample enrolled in the three nursery schools included 41 Negro children, 15 Caucasian children, three Oriental children, and six children identified by race as "mixed." Assessment of the total project is being made by identifying behavioral changes, in the children, of factors related to mental health; in the families of the children, of factors related to mental health; and in family utilization of community resources.
