Georgia Health Policy Center Child Policy Briefs, 2002.
This set of briefs discuss state public policy and implications as they pertain to children in Georgia. The three briefs each address a single topic. The first, on benefits of child care for low-income children in Georgia, advocates implementation of the Georgia Early Learning Initiative (GELI) and details the program. The second brief, on the child care needs of Georgia's working mothers, provides information from focus groups on mothers' experiences with child care, the impact of low-quality care, and the potential impact of child care subsidies. The third brief compares Georgia child care indicators to those in other Southeastern U.S. states. (KB)
