The revolution in women's lives has created an unprecedented demand for non parental child care, and sparked a growing child care industry run by both public and private providers. In this book, two esteemed economists examine the causes and potential cures of the child care problems that face this country today. Writing for policymakers, parents, and providers alike, Barbara R. Bergmann and Suzanne W. Helburn provide the first in depth look at the child care industry, identifying crucial problems such as quality of care and the high cost of even mediocre care. Moreover, the authors identify sources for change including stronger regulatory procedures on providers and suppliers of care and more government subsidies. "America's Child Care Problem" examines the views of key players in all facets of the child care industry: CEOs, politicians, policy advocates, foundation directors, child care providers, and parents and offers specific advice and guidelines for parents to use when selecting care.
