Child Development Research and the Educational Revolution: The Child, The Family and the Education Profession.
Schaefer, Earl S.
According to this paper, the education profession can best serve the child and his family by training and encouraging parents to be better able to care for and educate their children. This objective would require emphasis upon developing communication, cooperation, and collaboration with parents to support the child's extra-academic education. It would also require educators to involve themselves in training parents and future parents in family care and education skills. Educational planners could then begin to develop the money, manpower, motivation, methods, materials, and models required to implement a life time and life space perspective on education. The objectives of enrolling children in school at five, four, or three years of age and of enrolling infants in developmental day care might appear less urgent if family care and education of children is strengthened and supported.
