Research in Review: Advocating for Policies to Improve Practice
Brown, Christopher
Young Children, v63 n4 p70-77 Jul 2008
A focus on academics without consideration of children's social, emotional, and physical learning is not developmentally appropriate. This article examines how early childhood practitioners can become informed advocates with the knowledge and confidence to talk with families, community members, and policy makers about their work with young children. It shows how reforms can improve teacher training and compensation; create appropriate early learning expectations and experiences for young children; foster a system that aligns teaching, content, and assessment practices; and expand the field to become a community-based system of care and education.
