It presents the historical and cultural factors that have shaped our current education system, examines the larger social trends that have contributed to present problems, discusses the various interest groups involved, and analyzes the larger social discourses that influence any discussion of these issues." -- website
"The IJEIECE aims at providing forum for consideration of current issues and development and for exchange of information and ideas about research and praxis in the practices of childcare and early childhood (K–3 levels) teacher education. Issues may relate to pre-service teacher preparation and in-service professional development. This journal prefers to publish original studies that contain data about community-based education, school and classroom practices and management in those levels. In addition, the IJEIECE presents articles that relate the latest research and review on early child development, cognitive psychology, and sociology of learning and teaching. Contents of the articles may include theories and practices in current methodologies of teaching and learning, technologies of teaching and learning in digital eras, curriculum review and research, and school and community-based management." -- website
