Marcon, Rebecca A.
Principal, v74 n5 p16-17,19-20 May 1995
Summarizes a study comparing effects of three different preschool models on urban public school children's success. Children enrolled in child-initiated programs mastered more basic skills than those in academically directed or middle-of-the-road classrooms. By fourth grade, the negative effects (lower scores and maladaptive behavior) of overly academic early childhood programs were clearly apparent. (10 references) (MLH)
