Poor Children, African Mathematics, and the Problem of Schooling
Ginsburg, Herbert
Educational Research Quarterly, 2, 4, 26-44, W 78
Children of 5 to 6 years of age in two West African tribes (one agricultural, one commercial), are shown to understand the quantitative concepts of more and less. The implications of this for American elementary education are discussed: certain basic cognitive abilities are present in all people, regardless of culture. (Author/CTM)
