Quote/Comment

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 28 For very young children in day care, there is an increased incidence of colds and other infections, epidemics of diarrhea and related diseases, more respiratory illnesses, and a significantly higher rate of inner-ear infections that can threaten hearing loss. One study shows that the number of sick days for kids in day care is 30 percent higher than the average.
Category = Disease
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 29 In sum, the evidence that day care is bad for children (both long- and short-term) is massive and is growing. Yet, with few notable exceptions, experts have been reluctant to tell parents about the dangers of non-maternal care...which their own research confirms. Why is this?
Category = Politics
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 29 Michael Meyerhoff, director of the Center for Parent Education, says while the vast majority of professionals in the field agree with the proposition that full-time day care is not in the best interests of young children, "because of the strong attacks they'd be likely to get, many people are not saying anything."
Category = Politics
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 30 The notion that subsidies and regulations can cure what ails the day care industry is, on its face, unreasonable: the higher incidence of disease, the insufficient individual nurturing of infants, the standardization of environment and activities--all these are "built into the system."
Category = Quality, Politics
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, pages 115-116 Christian Kjeldsen of Johnson & Johnson pointed to the popularity of his company's on-site day care centers...
Kjeldsen maintained that such benefits would be a permanent fixture despite recent downsizing and "early-outs" at the company. In other words, Johnson & Johnson has judged it more cost-effective to warehouse the young children of some employees than to retain the jobs of others whose incomes may be providing for their families without recourse to day care. Family friendly benefits do not, as it turns out, include job security.
Category = Economics, Politics
