The Challenge of Training and Credentialing Early Childhood Educators.
Phillips, Carol Brunson
Phi Delta Kappan, v76 n3 p214-17 Nov 1994
The separate preparation traditions for elementary teachers and child care professionals have created two distinct realms fraught with problems, yet rich with resources. Preparation for early education teachers is characterized by multiple entry paths, training based on child development principles, cooperative and differentiated classroom leadership, a meaningful parent role, and responsiveness to cultural pluralism. Elementary teachers could benefit by cooperating with child care specialists. (12 references) (MLH)
