Description

A four-month Courier-Journal investigation revealed that 260,000 of Kentucky's poorest children under the age of five are "especially vulnerable to failure in school and beyond if they are not well-fed, nutured and given quality care early in life." Among the investigation's findings was "the average quality of Kentucky's 2,000 child-care centers are poor", most child-care centers violated state regulations concerning staffing or saftey and "the number of state inspectors for child-care centers is far below that recommended by the national accrediting organization."
