Description

This work is a landmark investigation of the state of children's wellbeing in Australia, with contributions from Sue Richardson, Margot Prior, Steve Zubrick, Sven Silburn, Janet McCalman, Johanna Wyn and more. In ""No Time to Lose"", leading Australian scholars investigate the consequences for children of changes in work patterns and the job market, marriage breakdown, higher educational expectations, community breakdown, and the growing divide between those who have and haven't benefited from the nation's increased prosperity. They reflect on the community's responsibility for children, and on the lessons of history, then critically asses what needs to be done to enable our children to look to the future with optimism.show more
