A Documentary Report on Recent Research into Pre-School Education.
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Documentation Center for Education in Europe.
This annotated bibliography on research in preschool education was prepared as background material for two 1971 symposia on preschool research aims, methods, and problems. The report provides a sample of findings from work done in Western Europe and the United States since 1968. Topics include programs (comparisons, evaluation, continuity, etc) child development, home environment, methodology, skills, teachers, and finance. Confusion among research findings was noted but there appeared to be a swing towards intellectually structured programs with emphasis on the role of preschool education in reducing the disadvantages of low socio-economic status.
