On Behalf of Children: "Rethink Your Regalia."
Jalongo, Mary Renck
Early Childhood Education Journal, v25 n1 p1-2 Fall 1997
Discusses why early childhood educators should abandon their use of teacher-oriented decorative items: (1) such items evoke stereotypes with nostalgic appeal; (2) the decorations can undermine professional image; (3) the items communicate a message of subservience; (4) the items commercialize teaching rather than elevate the profession's status; and (5) resulting stereotypes disregard the unique history of early childhood education.
