Abstract/Notes: Purpose: This article investigates the role of private supplementary tutoring in Denmark in light of the country's pedagogical traditions in schools and leisure spheres. Design/Approach/Methods: Although tutoring activities are increasing, the phenomenon is not as prevalent in Denmark as in many other countries. In this article, we look in to the history of Danish pedagogy for answers as to why this is the case. In the analytical sections of the article, we include research on parental values of child-rearing, as well as findings from a pilot study on Danish families purchasing private supplementary tutoring, the public debate about private tutoring, and contemporary youth research. Findings: With a solid emphasis on democracy and equality in Danish pedagogy, the conditions for increasing private supplementary tutoring in Denmark have been challenged. However, a current focus on global competition, formal competencies, and higher academic performance among children and young people suggests that providers of private tutoring perhaps face a brighter future also in Denmark. Originality/Value: This article addresses a new field of qualitative research on private supplementary tutoring in Denmark and may be a platform for further reflection and empirical research.

Abstract/Notes: “Is it within our power to build a system of schools that allows dedicated educators to be successful, while giving all children opportunities to reach their potential?” John Merrow asks. “I believe it is.” As he reflects on the history of federal involvement in public education, Merrow highlights the urgency for structural changes in current education systems. To achieve this, he suggests an approach that would expand the influence of Montessori education in child development and address the complex question of whether public education serves as a public or private good.

Abstract/Notes: Allison Jones and Jacqueline Cossentino have taken the term child study to describe the work they do with children experiencing challenges. Their approach to child study attempts to change the typical question of "What is wrong with this child?" to "What is going on with this child?" They have created a system by which they try to pinpoint what is going on with a child (the BASE System) and then create an action plan for working with that child. It is a collaborative effort on the part of the school community, including multiple teachers and the school's instructional leader. In this work with children experiencing challenges, organizing and recording the work and progress is crucial to understanding what is effective, what is not, and ultimately in determining what is best for each individual child.

Abstract/Notes: The present study was intended to investigate the current status of Montessori education practices in Korea and to suggest future direction for its improvement and successful implementation of Montessori education in Korean kindergarten. This study was conducted by self-administered questionnaire survey. Subjects served for the study consisted of 85 Montessori teachers among 30 Montessori Kindergartens located in Seoul area, sampled from Korean Montessori kindergarten, using random sampling method. Data were analysed by IBM-PC computer, using SAS program. Statistical methods employed were frequency of item, t-test, and ANOVA. The summary of the research findings was as follows: It was revealed that Korean Montessori teachers who have worked for Montessori Kindergarten with the large amount of Montessori materials on hand had considerably higher recognition of the practical application of Montessori materials and teaching method of Montessori`s theory and program than Montessori teachers with small amount of materials in their Montessori kindergarten. However, the educational instruments for assessing the whole development of children held in stock by Korean Montessori kindergarten generally were below the mean number of holdings. Therefore, the author suggests the importance of educational assessment instruments for Montessori children and those proper application methods.

Abstract/Notes: New knowledge and skills acquired through the synergy of individuality and diversity will lead the society and culture in the 21st century. Contrasted with the isolation and exclusiveness in the 20thcentury, the synergy of individuality and diversity will be made through the mutual understanding and respect among people. In early childhood, children are beginning learners in their society, immature in body and mentality. They require social learning skills that will embrace the diversities within their culture. Korea is divided into South and North for over 60 years. As South Korea embraces the advanced society, understanding the South and North and the national education for the advanced society should be included in the early childhood education curriculum. The great scholars supported the premise that early childhood is the fundamental period for forming the personality and learning the basic knowledge and skills for the present and future. The encouragement of this global trend for individuality and diversity in current Korean early childhood program is in the beginning stages. Mixed racial families are becoming more prevalent in the Korean society. In the education area, the teaching method is just as important as the content. The type of teaching method, whether it is an experience or instructional-based method, depends on the learner and the knowledge trait. The teaching method has to focus on the learner and the characteristic of knowledge.
