Description

In an examination of day care in America, the Post-Gazette charted the terrain of a growing feature of American life -- one that is ruled by misperception and rumor, where parents and guardians must make critical choices for their children without good information, and without enough good choices. In an eight-part series, the Post-Gazette found that the greatest threat to the children in the nation's day care centers is not monsters, calamities or disease, but mediocrity and a lack of national commitment to improving the quality of child care. The investigation documented how day care in the United Sates is under-funded, under-trained, over-regulated in the wrong areas and under-nourished in the critical ones. (June 2 - 9, 1996)
