Confronting the Child Care Crisis Volume Five
Recounting experiences in the federal government, Dr. Auerbach reveals red tape, overlapping services, mismanagement, wasted resources, and how lack of interest and consistent support stalled critically important legislation, hampering programs that made a huge difference.
Dr Auerbach shows how child care leaders can respond to improve services, at federal, state and local levels, suggesting ways to build bridges of cooperation between government, industry, and local resources to make important changes and improvements. Includes President Richard Nixon’s 1971 veto message of the bi-partisan endorsed child care legislation (Title V Child Development Programs of S 2007- Economic Opportunity Amendment)
Full statements are also included from Senators Walter Mondale and Alan Cranston and The National Plan of Action presented by the National Women’s Conference held in November, 1977.
