Federal Early Childhood Programs: A Description and Analysis of Research, Child Care, State Grant and Teacher Training Programs Pertaining to Young Children. Interim Report.
Searcy, Ellen Ouhl
The main objectives of this report about the Federal effort in early learning research are to assist the National Program on Early Childhood Education (NPECE) in planning its research and development program, to identify predicted "popular" areas of research for the future, and to identify possible NPECE funding sources. The report contains a variety of information about educational programs of the Office of Child Development, the U.S. Office of Education, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Office of Economic Opportunity, and the child care programs of the Appalachian Regional Commission and the Social and Rehabilitation Service. The report is comprised of four sections: Section I defines the area "early learning"; Section II identifies the bureaus, divisions or branches within agencies that are involved in early learning research, and describes the general educational research activities of these groups; Section III discusses a set of "fact sheets," one for each program that is focused on early childhood research, as well as for relevant miscellaneous programs; and Section IV contains a listing of project titles and money funded for FY 70, with tentative conclusions regarding research trends and needs.
