A Fair Chance: An Evaluation of the Mother-Child Education Program.
This book examines the content and effects of the Mother-Child Education Program, an early childhood and adult education program implemented widely in Turkey. The book presents a multipurpose education model, which draws on research indicating that support in early years can affect the development of the child, and which can be used to disseminate early childhood education at a low cost to groups who are most in need. Following a brief preface, the first section of the book examines the Mother-Child Education Program, including the theoretical rationale, how the program is implemented, and how it is disseminated. The second section details the immediate effects of the program, effects on initial school success, and program implementation and dissemination. The third section discusses findings of the study investigating the effects of the program. The fourth section, based on mothers' self-reports, notes changes seen in children, in the mother-child relationship, in the mothers' personality, in the family and the father, and overall opinions of the program. Four appendixes chart the program's immediate effects, initial school success and school adaptation, program implementation evaluation, and a sample enrichment unit from the program.
