Children the world over need that which is recommAnded for children in the United States.? --GwAndolyn Calvert Baker, president and CEO, United States Committee for UNICEF
?This seminal volume on the need for a much-improved early childhood education system incisively demonstrates that our nation can do much better in meeting the needs of our youngest children. The book offers a superb synthesis of the latest research and available action strategies that should be considered of the highest priority by America's pivotal institutions.? --David A. Hamburg, M.D., president, Carnegie Corporation of New York
?Because child care will be crucial to the success of state welfare reform efforts, federal funding for child care will almost triple over the next six years. Unless steps are taken to improve the quality of these services--ensuring quantity with quality--I believe that increased funding is of limited value. The challenge is before us and we cannot afford to fail. Governors, state human service administrators, and child care providers will find Reinventing Early Care and Education an invaluable resource in the development of child care that incorporates high quality, early childhood education.? --Senator Nancy Landon Kassebaum, state of Kansas
