A Working Paper on Child Day Care Policy Proposals for the State of Minnesota.
Winget, W. Gary
This position paper argues that public and private policies in Minnesota are not responsive to the large scale entry of women into the labor force and proposes a series of basic long-range strategies and specific child day care policies aimed at allieviating the hardships and inequities existing for working women and their families. It is suggested that Minnesota should review state and federal policies to determine which policies should be continued and/or altered, and what new policies should be enacted. Four long-range strategies are proposed: (1) introducing flexibility into the structure of work, (2) providing support for supplying formal child day care services, (3) providing assistance to parents in purchasing child day care services, and (4) making supportive child development services available to all formal and informal child care services. Sixteen specific policy proposals pertaining to these long-range strategies are presented. (CM)
