Synopsis

Day care in Alberta has had a remarkably durable history as a controversial issue. Since the late 1950s disputes over day care programs policies and funding have been a recurring feature of political life in the province. Albertas Day Care Controversy traces the development of day care policies and programs in Alberta with particular emphasis on policy decisions and program initiatives that have provoked considerable debate and struggle among citizens. For most of Albertas first fifty years as a province day care was treated as a private rather than a public issue. Beginning in the late 1950s however debates about day care began to appear regularly on the public record. Dr. Tom Langford brings to light the public controversies that occurred during the last four decades of the twentieth century and the first decade of the new millennium placing contemporary issues in historical context and anticipating the elements of future policy struggles.
