The 1993 New York State Children's Agenda.
Statewide Youth Advocacy, Inc., Albany, NY.
This publication advances an agenda on children's issues for the New York State Legislature in the 1993 budget and legislative session. An opening section reviews the status of the state's children with respect to poverty. The following section argues for a series of remedies including raising the minimum wage, offering a state earned income tax credit, increasing public assistance grants, and expanding child assistance programs. A section on children's health suggests universal health care for children, and increased participation and funding for program that address hunger. In the area of education the document advocates creation of an equitable school aid formula and redesign of special education services. A final section proposes support for vulnerable children and families through commitment to a family preservation philosophy in the development and delivery of child welfare, juvenile justice, health, mental health, family support, and community development services. This section outlines a proposed 5-year plan for state agency integration for more effective service to families. (JB)
