Educating Young Children: Next Steps in Implementing the School Readiness Task Force Report. Program Advisory.
This program advisory provides direction to school districts and providers of preschool and early primary programs in California who are implementing the recommendations of the School Readiness Task Force Report, "Here They Come: Ready or Not!" The Task Force Report addressed the issue of what kind of education would be necessary during the early years of a child's life if the child were to be prepared for the 21st century. It was concluded that California should increase support for the education of 4-year-olds and change the nature of kindergarten and first grade programs so that the programs fit the children in them. This advisory gives attention to Task Force recommendations about curriculum and instruction, assessment, parent involvement, and staff development. Sections focus on: (1) defining the educational program; (2) building partnerships with parents and among schools and programs; and (3) implementing the recommendations. In the last section, procedural suggestions and ideas are offered. Appendices provide acknowledgements, a reading list of 20 citations, and a list of related publications available from California's State Department of Education. (RH)
