Early childhood education: history, theory, and practice
In this volume, Harry Morgan covers the history, theory, and practices that influence early childhood education with an emphasis on infant and toddler care and education. He also presents a comparison of the conflict between educational planners who support early childhood studies and state school systems whose cost-saving measures are dismantling traditional early childhood programs to conform to their misinterpretation of the No Child Left Behind Act. Early Childhood Education provides descriptions of child-centered teaching, an explanation of our government's role in providing educational support, recommended instructional strategies, and guidance for home schooling parents.
