Kindergarten Education in Kentucky.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
A review of kindergarten programs (state, private, parochial and federally assisted) is set forth in four sections: (1) kindergarten programs in Kentucky public graded schools, (2) non-district public, private and parochial graded schools, (3) kindergarten and nursery school enrollment in private pre-school centers, and (4) federally-supported Project Head Start programs for the disadvantaged. The purpose of this report is (1) to provide a comprehensive survey of the existing programs of pre-primary education as a benchmark for future development, (2) to recognize the dedicated effort of public schools and the private sector to meet the challenging needs of the pre-school age child with local funds and whatever categorical aid is available, and (3) to encourage study by state and local agencies of the potential role of kindergartens in helping to reverse the high incidence of negative trends as experessed by delayed entrance, grade retention, dropout rate, and future career retraining. Documentary tables are shown in Appendixes A-E. (Author/CS)
