Early Childhood Teacher Education in Ethiopia: Progress and Emerging Challenges
Hoot, James; Szente, Judit; Tadesse, Selamawit
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v27 n2 p185-193 Jul 2006
This article extends concerns of our National Association of Early Childhood Teacher Educators (NAECTE) membership beyond the borders of the United States to the continent of Africa. Specifically, it explores the current status of early childhood teacher education in one of the poorest nations of the world--Ethiopia. It includes an analysis of recent policy developments as well as continuing challenges to educational progress. The article concludes with a call for like-minded professional organizations such as NAECTE to lend its expertise and support to this struggling nation.
