Meyers, Marcia K.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p767-83 Aug 1993
Examined data from Job Opportunities and Basic Skills program. Found that participants increased their use of substitute child care and of licensed day-care homes/centers, after beginning job readiness activities. Child care was found to be highly variable in terms of convenience and program quality. Problems with child care increased participants' odds of dropping out of program. (Author/NB)
