Child Development Policy for Texas, PRP 2
MetadataShow full item record
Child-development policy, like most social policy, is made in Washington. This is true for legislative authorization, administrative rules, and funding of major programs. On the basis of its study and analysis, however, the Child Development Policy Research Project has concluded that the state's response to federal policy allows· for more initiative and innovation than is generally assumed. Specifically, this Report proposes that: • the state can build around existing federal programs a statewide system of services addressed to the diverse needs of Texas children; • the state can increase the number and quality of services offered without waiting for new national legislation; and • the state can overcome the present separation ofservices by developing comprehensive programs.
