High/Scope Educational Research Foundation. The Milton and Eleanor Fromer Lecture on Early Childhood Education (6th, Jerusalem, Israel, December 17, 1991).
Weikart, David P.
This paper provides an overview of the High/Scope Educational Research Foundation, an organization that sponsors studies of the efficacy of intervention in the early years of development, especially with economically disadvantaged children. Using several High/Scope Foundation studies to illustrate its points, the paper examines issues common to operating any early childhood program with sufficient quality to make a positive impact on participating children. Standards are presented that curriculum model programs must attain to qualify as acceptable approaches. The paper explores specific criteria governing the operation of any quality program and notes the role of the community in its success. (MM)
