Improving Literacy in America

This chapter discusses the effects of childcare and parenting in the development of children's literacy. It also discusses how early childhood programs positively influence children's academic and social skills and why certain early childhood education programs are effective. Based on research evidence, some early childhood intervention programs strongly support children's later academic success. These include the Perry Preschool Project, the Abecedarian Project, the School Development Program, and the Chicago Title I Child-Parent Centers.
