An Indian Voice in the Education of Young Children.
Viruru, Radhika; Cannella, Gaile S.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v6 n3 p308-15 Jul 1997
This case study shows that young children in a multilingual Indian preschool are functioning in an environment constructed out of their community's needs and values. The school did not focus on child development but stressed memorization and free expression and functioned consistently within the Indian historical, societal, and value context. No educational environment is globally appropriate for all. (16 references) (MLH)
