A Cross-Cultural View of Early Education


by Nancy M. Robinson & Halbert B. Robinson 1972

In the brief space available, it would be impossible to describe meaningfully the actual programs as they exist in these eleven countries. Rather, we will examine a number of conceptual and practical variables which seem to underlie differences and similarities among this sample of nations in their programs for the young. 1 Every nation acknowledges that its children are its most important resource. For planners, practitioners, and citizens everywhere it is important to consider alternative means to improve the care and enhance the development of the young child. It is important, too, to understand that a broad range of issues and circumstances must be taken into account, that what is "best" in one country may not fit another at all.
