Child Education : Perspectives, Opportunities and Challenges
In Child Education: Perspectives, Opportunities and Challenges, the authors present and discuss the partial results of the first stage of a research study on children's transition from early childhood education to elementary school.
Next, drawing on findings from a four-year longitudinal study which investigated direct and indirect influences of parental involvement on academic achievement of pupils, social cohesion, and the family-community-school relationship, this compilation focuses on the role of parents as partners in contemporary schooling.
The subsequent study looks for evidence of how school attendance depends upon household circumstances, notably income and education, and how attendances varies with gender and region.

The closing chapter provides an insight into a relatively novel pedagogical method applied within the framework of peer education.
This multilateral activity focuses on knowledge, health behavior, attitudes, experience and motivation of youngsters in connection with health promotion programs and community service work.
