Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
In the first in a series of regional hearings, the House Education and Labor Committee met in San Francisco to receive testimony concerning child care issues bearing on H.R. 3, the Early Childhood Education and Development Act. The legislation, which builds on programs of proven effectiveness, such as Head Start and early childhood education, provides states with funding for direct services for child care. The bill also provides funds for improving quality, salaries, and other compensation, and resources for training, monitoring, and enforcement. Appearing before the committee were two panels and several individuals who testified on: (1) child care in California and the need for a comprehensive national policy; (2) the federal role; (3) corporate child care services; (4) related issues before Congress; (5) a unique drug education project in public housing that gives mothers recovering from crack use a safe haven which allows them to rehabilitate themselves and retain custody of their children; (6) support for the bill from the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees; (7) day care programs in San Francisco; (8) resource and referral programs in California; (9) the National Child Care Staffing Study; and (10) support for the bill from the California Alliance for Better Child Care.
