State Superintendent's Task Force on Early Education, Child Care, and Family Involvement. Final Report and Recommendations.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Wisconsin's Task Force on Early Education, Child Care, and Family Involvement identified the early education, child care, and family support services that will be needed in coming years and determined how these services should be implemented and coordinated. The task force began its work with an invitational conference involving about 100 participants, who generated a list of issues to consider. Task force members reviewed a series of state and national study reports, visited pilot early education and parent involvement projects in Milwaukee, and heard presentations from other sources. The task force concluded that the demonstrated value of early education, child care, and family resource and support programs justifies a collaborative state plan to make such services available throughout Wisconsin. The prime objective of the plan should be statewide availability of quality programs for all young children. Sections of this publication concern the status of related programs, task force beliefs and recommendations, and the recommended coordinated service plan. Appended materials include statements by prominent sources, old and new frameworks for family and child policies, federal aid programs, criteria for a services model, a list of policy choices and an early childhood survey instrument.
