Overview

Lack of access to affordable high quality child care is frequently the tipping point that catapults a family into poverty, joblessness, and homelessness. Polakow presents the compelling stories of low-income women from across the nation and chronicles their resilient struggles in the face of ongoing child care crises. The resulting work is an incisive critique of public policy that points to the shameful record of the United States in caring for its children. Drawing on historical and international perspectives, Polakow creates a groundbreaking analysis of child care as a human right, persuasively arguing for a universal child care system.
