Towards Sustainable National Development through Well Managed Early Childhood Education
Abraham, Nath M.
World Journal of Education, v2 n3 p43-48 Jun 2012
This paper discusses issues relating to sustainable development and effective management of early childhood education. The child is the "owner" of the future. The problems that confront the current generation are complex and serious that cannot be addressed in the same way they were created. But they can be addressed. The concept of sustainable development is an attempt to shape thought in global systemic perspective as well as secure a future. The future is the children heritage who must also understand the demands of this challenge. Early childhood education is the key to unlock the understanding required to inherit this future and requires effective management. The paper therefore recommends the school building, provision of appropriate instructional and infrastructural facilities; curricula reforms in line with future (economic, political, natural, social, etc) demands as well as increased funding to enhance early childhood education.
