The morals of childcare…

“A moral argument lies at the heart of the child-care debate. Who is the client and what is the service provided to them? For the non-profit centres, the client is the child. For other types of child-care, the client is the parent or the employer. The ramifications of this shift are enormous.” (Ethical Investor, cited p.60 in Goodfellow)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
