15 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 2,973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barnett and Boocock present a multi-disciplinary assessment of the long-term outcomes of early care and education in the United States and abroad. Innovative new research, together with up-to-date, comprehensive reviews, provide lessons for the design of early childhood programs, policies, and research. Contributors from the fields of education, psychology, sociology, and economics address questions about the causal relationships through which early childhood programs produce their long-term effects, the characteristics of effective early childhood programs, how nations respond to the global social and economic trends that are changing the lives of children and their families everywhere, child care's effects on maternal labor force participation, the potential and perils of welfare reform, and the implications of national economic and political structures for early care and education policies."--Jacket

The Perry Preschool Program and its long-term effects : a benefit-cost analysis by W. Steven Barnett( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report details a benefit-cost analysis of the Perry Preschool program and describes the program's long-term effects. Conducted since 1962, research on the Perry Preschool program constitutes one of the strongest and best-known sources of support for the long-term efficacy of early intervention with disadvantaged children. The Perry Project collected data on 123 3- and 4-year-old disadvantaged black children (with no discernible physical handicaps) during the years of the preschool program, through the early elementary years, at age 15, and at age 19. Analysis of this data shows that the preschool program had a variety of significant positive effects on the children attending. These effects are the basis for comparing the economic benefits of one or two years of preschool. The report is divided into six sections, each dealing with a category of program effects, including the following: (1) the program and its immediate consequences, (2) elementary and secondary education, (3) higher education, (4) delinquency and crime, (5) welfare, and (6) employment and earnings. Each section discusses the data, assumptions, and methods used to evaluate costs and benefits, as well as the results. A seventh and final section presents an overall view of the benefit-cost analysis in terms of profitability. Finally, the report discusses some of the policy implications of the analysis and some of the issues that must be addressed in making public policy choices based on this evidence. (DST)

Handbook of early literacy research by Susan B Neuman( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of early literacy has seen significant recent advances in theory, research, and practice. This volume brings together leading authorities to report on current findings, integrate insights from different disciplinary perspectives, and explore ways to provide children with the strongest possible literacy foundations in the first 6 years of life. The Handbook first addresses broad questions about the nature of emergent literacy, summarizing current knowledge on cognitive pathways, biological underpinnings, and the importance of cultural contexts. Chapters in subsequent sections examine various strands of knowledge and skills that emerge as children become literate, as well as the role played by experiences with peers and families. Particular attention is devoted to the challenges involved in making schools work for all children, including members of linguistic and ethnic minority groups and children living in poverty. Finally, approaches to instruction, assessment, and early intervention are described, and up-to-date research on their effectiveness is presented

Low Wages = Low Quality Solving the Real Preschool Teacher Crisis. NIEER Preschool Policy Matters, Issue 3 by W. Steven Barnett( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recruiting and retaining good teachers ranks as one of the most significant roadblocks to solving the preschool quality crises facing the country. Evidence points to the low wages and benefits offered to preschool teachers as the single most important factor in hiring and keeping good teachers. This policy brief examines what is known about the connection between inadequate teacher compensation and preschool quality, and offers recommendations to improve quality through improvements in compensation and retention. Recommendations include the following: (1) Head Start could raise teacher qualifications and compensation to the level of K-12 education in public schools with only modest annual increases in funding; (2) state prekindergarten programs must have enough funds to ensure adequate and comparable pay in public school and private contracted programs; and (3) state policies to subsidize the supply of good preschool teachers will succeed in the long run only if other state policies also support adequate pay and benefits.
