The pre-school correspondence program : background by Gerald Ashby( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is intended to furnish the necessary context and background information for an understanding of the role and functions of the Queensland, Australia Pre-School Correspondence Program. This educational service, the first of its kind in Australia, occurred within the context of a policy to provide one year of free preschool education for all children aged 4-5 years within the State of Queensland. It is directed toward children in remote areas. Lessons consist of a printed program with suggested activities for parents to use with recorded material or cassette tapes, library resources and a kit of equipment. This paper provides an overview of Queensland's geography as well as an outline of Queensland's educational system and tables presenting such demographic data as school enrollments, home background, age distribution, remoteness from school, illnesses among school children, and equipment available to the parents.

This report is the sixth in a series of evaluations of the Queensland (Australia) Pre-School Correspondence Program (pscp), a preschool program conducted by mail for families living in remote or isolated areas. This report represents teachers' perceptions and evaluations of the program. The introduction to the report outlines the administrative structure of the program and describes the teacher interview which provided the information for the study. The interviews were conducted individually and consisted of questions grouped under six general headings: (1) background information on the teacher, (2) the teacher's perception of the parent's role in the program, (3) the teacher's perception of her own role, (4) her evaluation of the type of information provided in the program, (5) her perception of the objectives of the program, and (6) her perception of the limits of the program. The report includes numerical summaries of responses to each question and a discussion of these results. The results are also discussed in relation to responses obtained from parents in a previous program evaluation. The final section of the report includes a summary of the major findings of the study and recommendations for utilizing the results to improve the program. (Bd)

This report presents an analysis of information about the teaching styles used by parents of children enrolled in the Queensland Preschool Correspondence Program in Australia.

Interviews cover such topics as demographic information; parents' views of their own roles as teachers and their expectations for their children; how parents presented the program to their children; parental attitudes and practices related to child rearing, and the types of resources and teaching materials parents found helpful. Specific tables and data illustrating outcomes of the interviews are included. In all families the mother was found to be completely responsible for her child's preschool correspondence program. Appendices include a copy of the questionnaire used in the parent interview, and 13 supplementary tables. (CM)
