Early Childhood Education Leadership Conference (Memphis, Tennessee, April 25-26, 1969) "In a Nutshell".
Woolner, Rosestelle B., Ed.
The major purpose of the Early Childhood Leadership Conference was to provide an atmosphere and a forum in which representatives for State departments and colleges of education could design a plan for meeting the present shortage of kindergarten teachers in the South. Participants were divided into small groups to design sub-regional teacher training plans. Presentations were: "Strategies for Educating Early Childhood Educators," by Martin Haberman, and "Teacher Education and Certification for Teachers of Young Children," by Mary Ellen Perkins. A combined summary of the planning groups' regional plan for preparing early childhood educators is provided. State status reports and certification requirements are provided for the six participating States--Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. A list of participants is also provided. (KM)
