While this article was about children in America’s day care centers, I draw your attention to the terrific increase in brutal violence against children outside of day care.
As a guardian ad-Litem for Hennepin County I have witnessed indescribable violence against children (none of which was ever made public).
As stated in this Star Tribune article; “we don’t even know where or how to establish a baseline for this”.
Day care workers in America are paid less than food service workers (the lowest paid employees in the nation).
The rest of the industrialized world long ago recognized the value of healthy children and qualified day care centers.
