Colleagues: The Fall 2011 edition of American Educator, a journal of the
American Federation of Teachers, published an article of mine entitled
Getting It Right From The Start: The Case for Early Parenthood Education.
The article argues for greater attention to the education of adults in early
childhood education. This is part of my argument for greater use of adult
educators in early parenthood education.
As one indicator of interest in the article, The Education Digest published
an abridged version of the article in the May 2012 issue.
Im pleased to announce now that McGraw-Hill Higher Education CREATE online
publishing center has sought permission to use the article. It will be
listed 9/7/2012 and produced in an initial run of some 8000 copies (print
and/or e-Book formats).
My workshop on The Intergenerational Effects of Adult Education (see below)
makes the case for Early Parenthood Education. I will be presenting this
workshop September in Syracuse, NY for the ProLiteracy Worldwide
organization. In this workshop I illustrate the role of adult literacy
educators in parenthood education from the early 20th century to the
present. Many family literacy programs include parenthood education and the
workshop discusses aspects of this work by adult educators.
