Wortham, Sue C.
Childhood Education, v70 n3 p156-60 Spr 1994
Compares La Junta Nacional de Jardines Infantiles (JUNJI), Chile's federally funded preschool system, with the United States' Head Start program. Notes that, unlike Head Start, JUNJI is administered at the national level; requires preschool teachers to have four-year university degrees; follows a national curriculum; and, due to budget constraints, provides only the most basic classroom environment and educational materials.
