Four Year Olds and The Public Schools: Key Issues. Proceedings of a Fairfield Forum (Fairfield, Connecticut, October 18, 1988).
Caruso, Joseph J., Ed.; And Others
Forum participants met to assess Connecticut's progress in providing services to 4-year-olds and their families, and to discuss the relationship between young children and public schools. Discussion explored these questions: (1) What are the roles and responsibilities of public schools in supporting 4-year-olds and their families? (2) What do high quality programs for 4-year-olds "look like" in the public schools? (3) How might public schools collaborate with local providers of services to 4-year-olds? (4) What are some implications for public school administrators to keep in mind as they consider establishing programs for 4-year-olds in their schools? and (5) What are some promising practices or models of programs for 4-year-olds at the state, regional, and national levels? Participants ranged from the State Commissioner of Education to kindergarten teachers. Included is an annotated bibliography of 27 citations of related material, and a reference list of 22 citations.
