Administration of the FIDCR: A Description and Analysis of the Federal Day Care Regulatory Role. Technical Paper 2.
Gold, Jane Roosevelt
This volume contains the technical paper prepared by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (DHEW) to give additional data and more detailed analysis of materials used to study the administration of the Federal Interagency Day Care Requirements (FIDCR). This study was part of a larger project to investigate two questions: Is the Federal regulation of day care financed under Title XX appropriate? Are the specific requirements for day care now imposed under Title XX appropriate? The present volume contains three sections. Section I contains analyses of the comprehensiveness, extensiveness, and application of FIDCR and state licensing for day care standards. Section II analyzes federal implementation of policies and regulations in terms of clarity of goals, clarity of language, public involvement, the regulatory climate, conflict in loyalties, and enforcement policies. Section III discusses both state implementation of activities to ensure FIDCR compliance and general state measurement activities. Appendices are included. An Executive summary of the "Report on the Appropriateness of the FIDCR: Report of Findings and Recommendations;" the text of the FIDCR; and a legislative history of the FIDCR. Also provided are a 5-page bibliography and a 17-page glossary of terms. (Author/DB)
