Opinions on Day Care and Social Policy.
Hollomon, John W.; Zaccaria, Michael A.
A survey instrument developed to determine opinions of various groups on aspects of social policy and day care services was distributed among individuals involved in various ways with day care. The 42-item questionnaire used a Likert-type opinion scale to measure attitudes on: (1) aims and requirements of day care programs; (2) use of public funds; (3) regulation of day care; (4) rights and responsibilities of parents; and (5) day care for the economically disadvantaged. Responses from 225 individuals were tabulated and analyzed, with respondents categorized into the following seven groups: independent providers; federally-funded providers; other non-profit providers; state licensing representatives; state agency social services personnel; advocacy and college personnel; and parents. Data from each of these seven groups were compiled and tabulated according to the number strongly agreeing, agreeing, not sure, disagreeing and strongly disagreeing with each item on the survey. Results are summarized and tables are included. (BF)
