A Parental Perspective of School and Familial Curriculum Making: A Narrative Inquiry of Early Childhood Education Planning in Hong Kong
Siriboe, Keisha; Harfitt, Gary
Education 3-13, v46 n5 p535-546 2018
This paper examines the early childhood context of Hong Kong (HK) which is characterised by an entirely privatised system. The level of knowledge a child possesses in early childhood can be a determining factor in their admission into desirable kindergartens or primary schools. Given HK's privatised early childhood education system, the quality of a child's learning is directly tied to the education services their parents provide independently or can afford financially. The study reported in this paper adopts a narrative inquiry approach to an under-researched area of early childhood education, namely the voices of parents within home learning environments and how the lengths they go to provide their children with a quality education.
