History Lessons for Preschool Advocates

(p.213) Conclusion
The Promise of Preschool

Elizabeth Rose (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The idea of universal pre‐kindergarten now enjoys nearly universal support. It is important at this juncture to understand what legacies we have inherited from the past, and what lessons we might learn from it. We must look beyond the lessons that advocates have already learned—namely that preschool should be framed in terms of education, provided to all children, and attached to K‐12 education—to recognize the complexity of fulfilling the promise of preschool.
