Grotberg, Edith; And Others
A summary of the second annual report of the Interagency Panel on Early Childhood Research and Development describes federally funded research in early childhood done in 1972, research plans for 1973, and long-range plans. Research programs are based on seven major areas: (1) the developmental process, (2) effect of primary environmental influences, (3) effect of broad social programs, (4) the global approach, (5) research to benefit all children, (6) research on methodology, and (7) the study of research planning and dissemination. The summary covers research reported by twenty federal programs, and includes data from 990 research projects, with a total budget of approximately $148.4 million. Number of projects and expenditures are charted for each of the federal programs. Discussion of future plans indicates expected areas of major emphasis. Also described are future activities of the Interagency Panel, designed to further research coordination. More detailed information can be found in document PS 006 759. ED 069 373 is the 1971 executive summary. (DP)
