Child Advocacy for Early Childhood Educators

This book contains a thorough examination of the ways in which early childhood educators can and should be advocates. Child advocacy is presented as active dedication to the needs of children in society, and incorporation of child advocacy into the identity of the early childhood profession is considered the key to increased recognition of the importance and power of the profession…Beginning with a current perspective on child advocacy, the book proceeds with ways to advocate for children within the classroom, the family, the society at large, and finally the political arena itself. With its important message to knowledgeable, caring teachers, CHILD ADVOCACY FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS becomes, in the long run, a call for our entire society to care more about its children.
