U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement, Programs for the Improvement of Practice, 1993 - Early childhood education - 42 pages
This document summarizes presentations made at a national policy forum concerning children's transition from home and preschool to the first years of elementary school. Opening remarks from representatives of the sponsoring agencies reviewed Goal One of the National Education Goals, which states that by the year 2000 all children in the United States will start school ready to learn, and described their agencies' work in the area of school transition. A plenary session included a presentation of various linkage and transition issues which were later addressed individually in small group discussions and regional laboratory activities. Two presenters then addressed the issue of parental and family involvement in the transition to school, while three individuals discussed the State Head Start Collaboration Program in Texas, Pennsylvania, and Oregon. Six roundtable sessions examined various issues involved in the home to school transition process. Concluding remarks addressed the challenges and opportunities facing early childhood education. A list of the forum's participants, along with their affiliations, addresses, and telephone numbers, is also included. (MDM)
