Early Childhood Education--A Position Paper.
Moore, Raymond S.
Congressional Record, v118 n167 pE8726-E8741 Oct 16 1972
A discussion is presented on the advantages and disadvantages of preschool education. Some critics argue that all children should have such intervention as is now provided for the disabled, arguing that such stimulation is a preventive measure against learning disability, delinquency, and other ills. Others disagree. It is contended that early childhood education (ECE) research in one of several areas is sufficient to question (1) early stimulation generally and (2) day care out of the home. It is also pointed out that the skillful intervention in behalf of even one child in the home can stimulate the entire family. It is concluded that, wherever practicable, intervention should be carried on in the home or in an environment identified as closely as possible with the home. (CK)
