The 1981 White House Conference for Children and Youth State Conferences: Implications of "New Federalism".
Verzaro, Marce; Potter-Kemmer, Amy
The Reagan Administration decided not to convene a national White House Conference on Children and Youth in 1981; instead, some portion of the conference monies were offered to states and territories so that relevant related activities could be conducted at state and local levels. Some 47 states and territories accepted the offer of funds, utilizing the monies in various ways. This paper compares how 27 states and one territory made use of the federal funds they received. Concluding remarks point out benefits of having a conference at the national level. Also included in the paper is a table, organized by state, displaying categories of conference data. For each participating state, number of participants, focus and goals of the conference, processes used, results, follow-up, evaluation results, and state agency in charge are indicated. (RH)
