National Commission on the International Year of the Child, Washington, DC.
This report to the President overviews the activities of the United States National Commission on the International Year of the Child (IYC), 1979, and makes recommendations for national policy. Part One consists of a brief report of organizing activities of federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations, synopses of local initiatives for children, and the report of the Children's Advisory Panel of the National Commission. Included in the Panel's report are the topics of fear and violence, education, social problems, and adult/youth communication. Part Two focuses on the current condition of families, minority children, and support systems such as family support services, juvenile justice and youth services, health care, and education. Recommendations are made for action in most of these areas of concern. The final chapter reviews some of the major aspects of the larger society that impinge on families. The effects of the economy and media on children, education for global living, every child's right to citizenship, and the condition of children in foreign countries are discussed. IYC related declarations, resolutions, orders, announcements, legislation, committee and organizational rosters and other materials are appended. (Author/RH)
