Continuity in the Early Years: Transitions between Grades and Systems


by Bettye M. Caldwell — 1991

That development is continuous, albeit marked by apparent spurts and plateaus, is a truism. The education which should parallel and help to shape that development is, on the other hand, characterized by sharp discontinuities. Moving from one branch to another—e.g., elementary school to secondary school—is more than simply climbing up one rung on the educational ladder. It involves a move into a new culture, a new ecology with a different set of procedures and requirements. Adaptation to the new setting requires more than merely learning where the lockers are and how to use them.
