Education for Parenthood and the Schools.
Kruger, W. Stanley
School-related programs of the Education For Parenthood Project are described. The purpose of the project is to provide young people with knowledge and skills to enable them to be effective parents. The rationale for such a program is based on the ineffectiveness of current laissez-faire policy in the schools, as reflected by problems of child abuse, retardation, infant care, drug abuse, and divorce rate for young marriages. High quality programs already in existence at Gathersburg, Maryland, Mt. Desert Island, Maine, Los Angeles, California, Dallas, Texas, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Battle Creek, Michigan, are described. An extensive survey of all existing programs is now being taken by the Education for Parenthood Project, with the long range goal of developing a comprehensive curriculum model. General subject areas for the model and general educational objectives are described. Also emphasized is the need for an instructional technology to make the content relevant and universal for youth. Finally, the importance of inter-institution cooperation and distribution of materials to schools and communities is discussed. (DP)
