The Invention of Day Care How “researchers” and reporters, shrinks and bureaucrats have used their own personal choices and lots of wishful thinking to create the sad myth of “good” day care.  By Tom Zoellner, Reprinted from Men's Health Magazine, September 1999, manslife.com DAY CARE IS A SELF-JUSTIFYING INDUSTRY
Sandra Scarr, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at the
University of Virginia…is regarded as a leading researcher in the field. Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, she published studies and magazine articles showing essentially the same results: Even average-quality child care has very small negative effects, if any. Nor have her views (about daycare) wavered in the face of the considerable research to the contrary since then.
Scarr herself has been a major player in the $36 billion day-care industry. She served on the board of directors of KinderCare Learning Centers, Inc., a nationwide chain of day-care franchises then based in Montgomery, Alabama, and became chairman of the board in 1994; a year later she was installed as CEO, and she then left the
University of Virginia. The studies continued, though. A 1998 article she wrote for the APA’s journal American Psychologist featured a photo of Scarr provided by KinderCare.
She says that, with the exception of Belsky, no one has ever challenged her dual role  as researcher/executive
(which might be perceived as an ethical conflict of interest).

The Invention of Day Care By Tom Zoellner, manslife.com, September 1999

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE COUNTS
A business as big as the day-care industry exerts a lot of influence. But so do personal factors. For example, it goes all but unnoticed that most of the stories about day care in the papers, in women’s magazines, and on TV seem to be written by working women who are reporting, for the most part, on studies conducted by women very much like themselves. Presumably many of these women have children, and presumably a great many of these are in some form of day care. Despite their routine claims to objectivity, it may not be reasonable or fair to expect researchers and writers to report accurately on a subject so many of them care so deeply about.
An easy analogy:
What if all the research and reporting on smoking were conducted exclusively by smokers?
