Day Care
Child Psychology & Adult Economics

Discussion, "The Economics of Day Care”,
P129

...some psychologists (said) essentially that industrial child-rearing is as good as Mom.
Rector
* judged that research to be "the greatest insult to mothers that has ever been put forward." In his own conversations with day-care center operators, Rector found that--aside from those highly politicized--few would assert anything like that.

Reviewing the ranks of those supporting (pro-daycare legislation), Rector pointed first to the day-care providers, who are eager for the money the bill would give them. Child-development professionals, on the other hand support (it) less for economic gain than for power.

Since (some of these bills include) a provision for a quasi-teacher certificate for day-care workers, a child-development associate degree, it appears that the National Education Association (NEA) intends to elevate day care to the status of an auxiliary to the public school system so that all of the many female day-care workers can be unionized.

Rector found it inconceivable that the parents of America would unite and march down Pennsylvania Avenue for a day-care bill that would exclude (most) children from any form of assistance.

Rector (testified before Congress in 1988) that there was no day-care crisis, nor a shortage of day care. Belatedly, now even The Urban Institute has issued a report finding no shortage of day care. The economic data on day care show that the market is working quite well: for-profit centers such as Kindercare and Gerbers operate with average vacancy rates of 25 percent. Still, Parade* magazine persists in its illusory reports of a chronic shortage of day care.
