Summary

This booklet presents a discussion of some moral and philosophical aspects of issues in early childhood education, beginning with a look at the development of Project Head Start. Current educational research is interpreted and distinctions are made between academic and intellectual goals, between achieving and learning, between performing and teaching, and between excitement and sustained interest. Some principles are suggested for teachers to remember: (1) goals and objectives really count, (2) attend to how children feel, (3) problems in education are also problems in society, (4) support a leader selected because he is competent, (5) identify your own assignment and do it well, (6) when meeting with colleagues and leaders, identify the problem to be solved (not the personalities), (7) remember the distinction between selling an idea and teaching, and (8) don't expect quick results. Finally, it's more important to inspire a mother's confidence in her child than to do what is pedagogically proper. (SET)
