Self Help Inc Book Excerpt:

Why doesn't self-help help? Cultural critic Micki McGee puts forward this paradoxical question as she looks at a world where the market for self-improvement products--books, audiotapes, and extreme makeovers--is exploding, and there seems to be no end in sight. Rather than seeing narcissism at the root of the self-help craze, as others have contended, McGee shows a nation relying on self-help culture for advice on how to cope in an increasingly volatile and competitive work world. Self-Help, Inc. reveals how makeover culture traps Americans in endless cycles of self-invention and overwork as they struggle to stay ahead of a rapidly restructuring economic order. A lucid and fascinating treatment of the modern obsession with work and self-improvement, this lively book will strike a chord with its acute diagnosis of the self-help trap and its sharp suggestions for how we can address the alienating conditions of modern work and family life.

Street Corner Symphony Book Excerpt:

Drugs, guns, and violence-all are a part of American urban culture. Street Corner Symphony shares the dark side of the urban experience and how one man becomes ensnared in its web. Regardless of race, color, or creed, many families become embroiled in this culture, turning their American dream into a nightmare. Author Robert Lee Glover shares his personal story of tragedy and triumph through the urban landscape of drugs and violence. But Glover also points out the things in life that make us great, and how we are at our best when life seems to be at its worst. Street Corner Symphony will give hope to those with family members involved with drugs and assure them that it is not their fault. Glover's intimate journey through the horrors of drugs is also filled with redemption and spiritual awakening. Most importantly, Glover stresses that there is still hope for all of us, no matter what we have done or the life we have led. With strength, faith, and optimism, anything is possible.

Transforming the Financing of Early Care and Education Book Excerpt:

High-quality early care and education for children from birth to kindergarten entry is critical to positive child development and has the potential to generate economic returns, which benefit not only children and their families but society at large. Despite the great promise of early care and education, it has been financed in such a way that high-quality early care and education have only been available to a fraction of the families needing and desiring it and does little to further develop the early-care-and-education (ECE) workforce. It is neither sustainable nor adequate to provide the quality of care and learning that children and families needâ€"a shortfall that further perpetuates and drives inequality. Transforming the Financing of Early Care and Education outlines a framework for a funding strategy that will provide reliable, accessible high-quality early care and education for young children from birth to kindergarten entry, including a highly qualified and adequately compensated workforce that is consistent with the vision outlined in the 2015 report, Transforming the Workforce for Children Birth Through Age 8: A Unifying Foundation. The recommendations of this report are based on essential features of child development and early learning, and on principles for high-quality professional practice at the levels of individual practitioners, practice environments, leadership, systems, policies, and resource allocation.
