Infusing Humanity into Welfare Reform: A Statement of Principles for a New Social Contract.
HomeBase: Center for Common Concerns, San Francisco, CA.
This report presents a context for the consideration of welfare reform, and reviews 10 major poverty programs. A linkage is made between government poverty programs and the full panoply of American economic and social interventions through five major themes: (1) quashing the many myths about welfare leads to a clearer understanding of poverty; (2) preserving entitlement programs will preserve the safety net that meets basic human needs, such as nutrition and health care; (3) assuring basic needs will promote a stable community; (4) maximizing human potential will promote economic opportunity and productivity is a third principle; (5) investing in children means investing in the future of our nation. This statement of principles sets out central priorities to guide discussion and policy into the next century. Education is specifically dealt with on pages 33-35. Children are the subject of pages 37-44. Resources can be found to meet these requirements. (Contains nine graphs, one table, and numerous illustrations.) (SLD)
