Final Report on Preschool Education to Ohio Department of Education.
McFadden, Dennis N.
The objectives of this report are to determine whether there is a need to establish a statewide policy of early education in Ohio, to define what priorities are implied by such a need, and to suggest relevant recommendations for the establishment of a policy, if needed. Sixteen chapters (nine-tenths) of this report present information from research literature on the development of abilities or skills of young children necessary for school achievement. The effects of environmental deprivation on learning are also discussed. The report urges that Ohio establish a policy in early education to assure quality preschool and kindergarten programs for children in poverty-depressed areas. Specific recommendations are made for curricular content, teacher training, welfare services, administration, and work in conjunction with existing and needed legislation. Bibliographic references are given. Three appendixes contain data on (a) estimates of children by age for Ohio counties, (b) technical procedures for projecting children by age for Ohio counties, and (c) state regulations for kindergarten as reported in a national survey.
