3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After more than a century of evolution, early childhood care and education in the United States is in transition. In this frank discussion of the field's purpose, identity, and responsibility, the authors examine the major issues that must be addressed if children are to be given more and better opportunities. They show how adaptive leadership work can unify the field, create openness to new change strategies, generate a shared vision, and build a viable strategy for its achievement."--Jacket
Children of 2010 by Valora Washington( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the twenty-first century, no single racial or ethnic group will constitute a majority of young people in an increasing number of states and communities in the United States, and, therefore, children need to be prepared to share a society of diverse students, neighbors, and co-workers. This book addresses some of the issues involved in making democracy work for the next generation of children, called the children of 2010, and explores population trends, the need to respect cultural and individual differences, problems confronting children and youth, best practices for programs, and action strategies for seeking needed change. The book is based on three dialogue sessions sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children conducted among national leaders. The sections of the book are: (1) "Democracy for a New Century"; (2) "The Knowledge Base: Demographics"; (3) "The Knowledge Base: Diversity, Change, and Opportunity"; (4) "Best Practices: Principles, Volunteerism, and the News Media"; (5) "Best Practices: Movements to Change Society"; (6) "Visions of 2010 and How to Get There"; and (7) "Letter to the Children of 2010." Each section is organized into four parts reflecting the dialogue process: focusing on a theme; exploring information; reflecting on learning; and dialoguing to expand the ideas. The book concludes with questions regarding the changes in personal lives, professions and workplaces, communities, values, the socioeconomic system, and commitment to activism to make full participation in democracy accessible to all children of 2010. Contains approximately 50 references. (Kb)

Grassroots success : preparing schools and families for each other. by Valora Washington( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of the National Education Goals calls for every child to be ready to learn when entering kindergarten. Noting that children are more likely to succeed when schools and families are prepared for each other, this book describes the grassroots efforts of The W.K. Kellogg Foundation School Readiness Initiatives to link families, schools, and communities in a variety of settings and populations. After background information on the national education goals, professional practices, and public policies that aim at providing high-quality experiences for young children, Chapter 1 introduces the emergence of the 20 Initiatives and their efforts to translate national aims into daily action. The second and third chapters discuss core strategies to prepare children and schools for each other. Chapter 2 focuses on family-oriented strategies, such as strengthening families, including communities for the children's progress, and promoting cultural competence by using culturally sensitive strategies and materials. Chapter 3 discusses strategies that engage the community, such as building on community assets, assessing community resources, and collaborating with local agencies and programs. In addition, emphasis is placed on working for results, looking for partners, generating publicity, and creating a bigger dream by nurturing local leadership. An appendix contains descriptions of each Initiative, including names of contact persons, the population served, and the nature of the initiatives and their successes. (Bac)

Creating new linkages for the adoption of Black children : Friends of Black Children Project, a guidebook by Helen J Berry( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this manual, the Friends of Black Children Project presents ideas for promoting and facilitating cooperation between social service agencies and black communities who are concerned about the disproportionate number of black children who remain homeless and unadopted. The guide is divided into four sections. Section I presents an overview of the Friends of Black Children Project (which is located at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill). The goal of this project is said to be the development and testing of strategies involving collaborative work between four local county departments of social services and the black communities. Section ii describes specific techniques that social service agencies can use when working with black families and the black community. Section iii, on black community involvement, gives suggestions for local citizens who are organizing and working with county social services agencies. Finally, Section iv contains recommendations, addressed to State and local agencies, on organizing and facilitating the work of State-level advisory groups. Four appendices include: (1) a list of training resources and strategies: (2) a bibliography and resource guide; (3) sample questionnaires (sample of evaluation tools used by the Friends of Black Children Project); and (4) sample media and publicity materials.

The Changing status of women and family roles by Valora Washington( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The changing role of women in the family is discussed, and alternative policy options relevant to female-headed and dual-income families are identified. A model of family functions and an outline of the historical forces shaping family roles from preindustrial to present times are presented. The model indicates the typical allocation of nine family responsibilities to either husband or wife, displays current trends in allocation, and lists societal supports which supplement or supplant the responsibilities of the family. Areas of responsibility considered are health, protection, breadwinner, household, extra-family social, affective support, child nurturance, morality/standards, and child instruction. The shift in roles resulting from family crises involving handicapped and chronically ill children, unemployment, divorce, and absent fathers, is also discussed. Further discussion explores the influence of public policy on the family and the surrogate role of society in aiding the family. Concluding that child care is perhaps the weakest link in the model, the paper evaluates six alternative child care policy options for aid to dual-worker or single-parent families (public day care centers for all children, child care programs for poor and handicapped, child care vouchers to low income parents, negative income tax, industry supported child care, and tax credit) by five criteria: cost, vertical equity, political feasibility, preference satisfaction, and effectiveness.
