Early Childhood Education.
Burke, David
Material bearing on the educational and social policy of early childhood education is summarized and a set of policy options and a recommendation are offered. An attempt is made to clarify the questions around which disagreements occur concerning the meaning and value of "education" in relation to young children. A history section treats ideas and programs in early childhood education and presents a perspective on the programs in relation to major social institutions. The various current programs for young children are analyzed; certain factors in the sociopolitical context that affect early childhood programming identified; and the relationship between research and educational and social policy development considered. A section on policy options notes the pros and cons of a major commitment by schools to early childhood education, then presents alternative models for educational policy and program implementation. The article concludes with a discussion of the preferred option. (Author/MLF)
