Policy Conference on Young Children: Conference Summary (Anchorage, AK, November 18-20, 1984).
Alaska State Legislature, Juneau.
The conference described addressed a wide range of key issues affecting young children and families; namely, child abuse, quality in pre-elementary programs, and responsibility for delivery of services. The document summarizes the policy issues identified by attendees of the 16 workshops and the addresses of the three major speakers (Dr. Donald C. Bross, Dr. David Weikart, and Dr. Shirley Moore). Presentations specifically include the following topics: the national trends in child abuse and neglect, the 19th year longitudinal study of the Perry Preschool Project and the "pay off" for Alaska from early childhood education, and the quality of early childhood education programs. Considered an accurate statement of statewide concerns, the booklet will be used as a planning tool by Alaska state legislators and the administration. (DST)
