In the wake of a very good story about American day care by The New Republic ‘s Jonathan Cohn , the liberal blogosphere is abuzz with ideas about improving day care for Americans. And as is required (I think it’s in the Constitution somewhere), any American left-of-center discussion of day care must be filled with encomiums to the French childcare system, with its wonderful public crèches (“crèche” just means “day care center”, but they must be called “crèche”) and other amenities. As both a conservative and an actual French parent, I find much of what I read about the French system to be simply fantastical.
