Financing Child Care through Local Taxes: One City's Bold Attempt.
Yeager, Kenneth E.; Strober, Myra H.
Journal of Family Issues, v13 n3 p279-96 Sep 1992
Interviewed policymakers and conducted election day exit poll to examine Fremont, California City Council measure asking residents whether tax should pay for child care. Concluded that measure lost because city overestimated shortage of child-care slots, supporters underestimated opposition, and city council and public opinion polls overestimated willingness of voting population to pay for public support of child care.
