Elizabeth Broderick calls for inquiry into childcare

Patricia Karvelas reports in the Australian (26/2/13) that:

Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick has called for a broad Productivity Commission inquiry into childcare and the care sector generally, to investigate a range of bold options to overhaul the system.

Ms Broderick argues that changes delivered in federal budgets do not provide lasting and desperately needed change and, while attention is focused on the care needed for preschool children, the care needed in later years is being ignored.
