Description

The Plain Dealer exposed the myth of Mary Poppins, documenting numerous cases in which poorly screened Wester European au pairs provided substandard care to their American charges or otherwise got themselves in legal trouble. The series examined how eight government-authorized sponsoring agencies had turned the rpogram into a foreign work program that emphasized cheap child care to American host families and a good time in the U.S. to au pairs.(Aug. 14 - 16, 1994, with several follow-up stories)
