Finding Our Way: The Future of American Early Care and Education
Item #: 702
Subject: Program Administration
This comprehensive and far-reaching analysis of the principles and practices of early care and education in the United States and Europe informs policymakers and center directors about the vital role high-quality teachers play in a child's later educational achievements and future success. The author describes the very high costs of child care in the United States, most of which is paid for by parents, and shows how greater government support in other countries makes teachers' pay higher, the child care centers better, and the burden on the parents lighter. From Zero to Three.
