Child Development Policy for Texas. Policy Research Project Report Number 2.
Texas Univ., Austin. Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs.
Although this report indentifies steps essential to developing a comprehensive state policy for children, it does not prescribe a particular policy or set of policies. From that viewpoint, the goals of the study are limited. The goals are (a) to assess child development policy in Texas from two perspectives, programmatic and systematic, and (b) to present options available for correcting administrative and legislative deficienceis that currently stand in the way of providing services to the children of Texas. The four chapters of this report discuss in detail the measures that must be taken to develop a comprehensive child development program. Chapter I assesses the service potential of the 10 most important child development programs in Texas. Chapter II examines existing or potential links among the major child development programs. Chapter III identifies selected policy issues that affect child development and the proposed child development system or its components. Chapter IV reviews specific capabilities that the state must develop to combine the isolated federal programs into a comprehensive policy. (Author/CS)
