Children's Experiences in Center-Based Child Care as a Function of Teacher Background and Adult:Child Ratio.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n3 p404-25 Jul 1997
Two studies examined impact of teacher background and teacher/child ratio on child and teacher behavior in a child care environment. Both studies indicate more effective performances produced by teachers with higher degrees. One study suggests lower ratios are more effective. No interactive effect of ratio and background was noted. (MT)
