The World Bank's View of Early Childhood.
Penn, Helen
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v9 n1 p118-32 Feb 2002
Explores World Bank's view of early childhood as an example of the globalization of childhood, arguing that the Bank's policies exacerbate the gap between rich and poor nations and between rich and poor within countries, and affect children's lives adversely. Explores inherent contradictions of policies that draw on traditional Anglo-American notions but are applied in other cultural contexts. (JPB)
