Parental Expectation of Early Childhood Education: Comparison between China, Japan, and Korea
Zhou, Aibao; Ma, Xiaofeng; Hajime, Aoyagi
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n1 p140-147 Mar 2007
This study investigates 727 parents from China, Japan, and Korea by a self-devised scale and compares the differences in their expectation of early childhood education in cross-cultural backgrounds. The result shows that parents from the three countries have a positive attitude toward their children's development. The main effect of nations on such factors as individual development, close attention to diet, willpower training, moral judgment, and emotional exchange with adults is significant, while the two-way interaction between nations and child gender, nations and child age, and the three-way interaction between nations, child gender, and child age are not significant.
