Why has child care legislation developed along its present
course? How did the political players influence lawmakers? What do
the politics of child care legislation over the past thirty years
indicate for the future? Based on more than one hundred interviews
with legislators and executive branch officials, archival research,
and secondary sources, this book looks at the politics behind child
care legislation, rather than analyzing child care as a work and
Identifying key junctures at which major child care bills were
introduced and debated (1971, 1990, and 1996), Sally Cohen examines
the politics surrounding each of these events and identifies the
political structures and negotiations that evolved in the
intervening years. In addition, Cohen looks at the impact the
election of President Clinton has had on child care policymaking,
and how child care legislation became part of other issues,
including welfare reform, crime prevention, school readiness, and
tax policy revisions.
