Focusing on the application of research in the social sciences to public policymaking in the U.S., this test explores national health policy, inner-city schools, and parent's and children's rights. By constructing a model of policy analysis and using day care centers to demonstrate how it can be applied, the editors raise serious and specific questions about policies affecting the care and education of young children.
