Position Statement on Kindergarten.
Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln. Div. of School Assistance & Support.
In the summer of 1983, Commissioner Lutjeharms authorized the appointment of a committee to study kindergarten programs in Nebraska schools and to formulate recommendations for needed improvements. The committee, in the course of its work, examined pertinent current professional literature and, with the assistance of Department of Education staff, surveyed the attitudes and practices of public school kindergarten teachers. This position statement on kindergarten by the Nebraska State Board of Education briefly reviews historical changes in kindergarten programs, discusses desirable characteristics of kindergarten programs and important outcomes of kindergarten, and offers recommendations for improving kindergarten programs to the State Department of Education, the Nebraska Council on Teacher Education, approved teacher training institutions, central administration and building level administrators in local school districts, kindergarten teachers, and parents of preschool and kindergarten-age children.
