Values Underpinning Poverty Programs for Children.
Heclo, H. Hugh
Future of Children, v7 n2 p141-48 Sum-Fall 1997
Examines public attitudes toward children, poverty, and government. Concludes that the American public tends toward an integrative perspective that values individual initiative even as it supports opportunities for all Americans. Government programs that fit the practical needs of everyday life are favored. Such programs should support personal efforts but not assume responsibility for individual or group outcomes. (SLD)
