Myers, Jane E.; Burdin, Joel L.
Educational Gerontology, v14 n2 p121-27 1988
Negative attitudes of children toward older persons are well documented, as is influence of teachers on children's attitudes. Surveyed state departments of education to determine curriculum content related to adult development and aging in teacher preparation standards. Few states required preparation in adult development and aging for teacher certification. Suggests implications for policy makers, professional organizations, and curriculum planners. (Author/NB)
