Preschool Education in the Union Territory of Delhi, India.
Stabile, Carole Cummings
This master's thesis gives an overview of education in India from ancient times to the present and presents data from brief visits to seven schools which provide early childhood education in the Union Territory of Delhi. The schools visited were either parochial, public, government corporation, or private schools. Data collection problems (including time limitations and teacher apprehension) are noted. The programs are described, and a brief discussion of the relation of program effectiveness and program goals is given. It is concluded that the emphasis on early childhood education in India is likely to remain strong. Appendix A contains an observation outline used in the Indian preschools. Appendix B lists interview questions. Appendix C presents syllabi, guidelines, or objectives of three of the preschools visited. A brief public school entrance test is reproduced in Appendix D. Appendix E notes that a slide/tape program describing the preschools discussed in the thesis is available. (RH)
