Implementing Child Development Programs. Report of an August 1974 National Symposium. Early Childhood Report No. 10.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
This report contains the texts of addresses and panel discussions presented at a symposium of state decisionmakers. Five aspects of child and family services were explored: (1) priorities for creating and expanding child development services; (2) effective service delivery systems; (3) the relationship between state and federal governments (on the issue of child development); (4) costs of various approaches to child and family services; and (5) sources of technical assistance. The addresses, made by major state and national government personalities, included: "Making Children a Public Issue"; "Reassessing Our Educational Priorities"; "Public Policy and Early Childhood Education-a Buddhist Garden"; "Families and Children: Why Do We Ignore Their Needs?"; and "Making State Policies for Children." Organizing delivery services was the topic of two panel discussions; another panel examined day care and cost effectiveness. A list of program participants and a list of resource consultants are included. (ED)
