Gambrell, Kathy A. "Gaps Remain in Early Childhood Education." White House Reporter. 7 Jan. 2002.
United Press International. 23 Apr. 2007. Http://www.sirs.com

The author, Kathy A. Gambrell, writes about the large gap still remaining for eligibility and funding in early childhood education programs despite effort from the state and federal levels from research she has conducted. She found that contributors such as lack of compensation and education in early education teachers effect the effectiveness of these efforts. She also states that most of the effort is concentrated on the neediest children, such as those from low- income families and children from teenage parents. This article helps me to know the main contributing factors to the current ineffectiveness in government-provided early education funding.
