Abstract:The theory and practice of evaluation in early childhood education has lagged behind the larger field of evaluation. Needed are ongoing, informed, and democratic discussions of values, with evaluators facilitating discussions of quality and challenging shared assumptions and beliefs. Unless educators can reflect upon and expand their views and values, program evaluations serve mainly bureaucratic and superficial purposes.
