Toward Interagency Coordination: FY '76 Federal Research and Development on Early Childhood. Sixth Annual Report.
Hertz, Thomas W.; And Others
The major purpose of the Early Childhood Panel's Annual Reports is to analyze early childhood research supported by the member agencies during most recent fiscal year in order to chart the directions in which federal research programs are moving both within individual agencies and within the federal government as a whole. Chapter I reviews the historical background, operational structure and fiscal year 1976 activities of the Interagency Panel on Early Childhood Research and Development. Chapter II describes the organizational theme: ecological approaches to research in child development. Chapter III examines the combined research of all of the agencies, presenting information on the number of projects and amount of funding in selected categories of research. The major categories pertain to major areas of research (cognitive growth and development, the family, educational services); major kinds of research (basic, applied or evaluative) and research target groups (by age, socioeconomic status and race). In Chapter IV similar kinds of analyses are presented separately for each agency. Appendices include agency plans for 1977, membership list, guidelines for using the panel's information system, symposium participants and documents prepared for the panels on Early Childhood and Adolescence Research and Development.
