Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In August 1997, California passed legislation that replaced the AFDC and GAIN programs with the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKS) program. This volume presents the results of an independent evaluation of the program in its first two years of implementation. The report draws upon fieldwork and surveys to discuss issues such as program funding and child care, transportation, education, and substance abuse services. The volume is not indexed. Annotation c.
