Mrozek, Andrea. (2012, August 30). Nurturing children: Why “early learning” doesn’t help. EReview: Latest Developments in Family Friendly Research, 12(18). Retrieved 7/11/13 from http://www.imfcanada.org/sites/default/files/ereview_august_30_12_0.pdf.

Author appears friendly toward homeschooling. “Children should start attending school later, not earlier, Canadian development psychologist Dr. Gordon Neufeld reveals. “Early learning” programs for young children have no benefits for kids, he adds. So why are governments running down the opposite track?” (p. 1).) (Keywords: early childhood education, socialization, attachment, homeschooling, research, Canada)
