Report of the National Conference on Parent/Early Childhood Education (Denver, Colorado, May 4-7, 1975).
This booklet reports on the 1975 National Conference on Parent/Early Childhood Education (P/ECE) which addressed the question of parents' influence on the cognitive and social-emotional development of their children during the preschool years, focusing particularly on ways that the importance of learning in the home can be stressed to parents and effectively translated into practice. The report is presented under three main headings: (1) The State Of The Art (What Is) which deals with organization of administrative agencies and features of existing programs in P/ECE; (2) Reassessing Our Educational Priorities (Need), which covers research findings on needs for P/ECE, organization and administration needed, and teaching/learning content and processes needed; and (3) Recommendations of the Commissioner (What Should Be), which specifies recommendations for action in five areas. Appendices include summaries of six addresses on the topic: Reassessing our Educational Priorities, The State's Responsibility, Whose Ball Park?, The Politics of Children, The California Picture, and Charge for the Future. Other appendices are a list of conference officials, the workshop schedule and conference schedule (including program participants), and the Women's Caucus Report. (GO)
