Choosing the Right Approach: New Labour and the Care and Education of Young Children
Wadsworth, John; George, Rosalyn
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v51 n3 p309-317 2009
Early Years provision in England has historically been fragmented and under-funded. In seeking to address this situation, New Labour has developed a range of Early Years initiatives with the principal aim of tackling poverty and disadvantage. This article traces the recent history of Early Years provision and critically explores the extent to which New Labour has been effective in unifying services, raising the status of Early Years practitioners, addressing under funding together with challenging disadvantage and social exclusion. (Contains 1 figure and 1 note.)
