Child Nurturance: An Agenda for the 1980s
The initial chapter of this book sets a tone that runs through all of the following chapters. This chapter adapted from Edward Zigler’s keynote address at the Michigan State University IYC Conference spoke of “gaps”—gaps between rhetoric and reality when it comes to child nurturance in America. On the one hand, America professes to be a child oriented and caring society; on the other hand, the evidence reflected by the various social indicators mentioned by Zigler and others clearly conveys a contradictory message. This concluding chapter focuses further on these “gaps” and suggests what can be done if we are going to live up to our professed societal goals for our nation’s children.
