Early Childhood Education in Urban America. Part II: An Overview of Policy Issues.
Takanishi, Ruby
In this paper (Part II of a presentation titled "Early Childhood Education in Urban America") four broad questions are discussed: (1) What are the goals of early childhood education? Continuing dilemmas in compensatory early education are articulated, and the questions of how should resources be allocated and who should benefit are raised. (2) Who is responsible for early childhood education? Discussed are parents and parent education, teachers and professional competencies and government responsibility. (3) How should child development services be delivered? Problems related to the coordination of child care services are discussed, and criteria for an ideal delivery system are identified. The question of the role of public school systems in delivering child care services is raised. (4) How will the issues facing early education affect the goals and roles of American education? It is suggested that one way of answering this question is to examine existing early childhood programs in public school systems. (MS)
