California's Early Childhood Education Program (Its Impact on Reading and Language Development of Children Ages 5-9).
Lantz, Albert W.; Holt, Janet M.
The goals of this instructional program for California public school children aged five through eight, begun during the 1973-74 school year, are to insure that all children who complete third grade will be able to read, write, and compute and to help children develop positive attitudes toward school so that they can achieve their learning potential throughout their compulsory school years. This document outlines briefly the instructional components of the program (language development, reading, mathematics, multicultural education, bilingual-bicultural education, and other curriculum areas), the support components (staff development, parent participation, parent education, and health/auxiliary services), and program strategies, and includes three tables charting results of a program evaluation.
