The Disease Fighters
The Nobel Prize in MedicineBook - 1987
In the modern United States, mothers who choose not to stay at home are often criticized, but there is similar pressure women on welfare to leave their children behind. Many people recognize the benefits of early childhood education, but it is not provided as a public right until children enter kindergarten. Children are priceless, but the overwhelmingly female workforce which cares for them is paid minimum wage. We are not really sure if day-care is detrimental or beneficial for children, or if mothers should really be in the workforce. To better understand how we have arrived at these present-day dilemmas, Elizabeth Rose argues, we need to explore day-care's past.
