Public Policy Facts on Families

Public Policy Facts on Families are research-based information sheets developed through the Texas Registry of Parent Educator Resources (Texas ROPER) at the Center for Parent Education at the University of North Texas in collaboration with members of the Texas Council on Family Relations.  Public Policy Facts on Families can be duplicated for distribution to policy makers in your community.

These information sheets:  

  • provide information about child and family issues and implications for decision making for local and state policy makers
  • suggest the basis for questions and responses for witnesses in hearings
  • provide contact information for expert professionals in the family relations and child development field

The Center for Parent Education responds to the needs of families in Texas through education of professionals who work with families, resources for parents and professionals through the Texas ROPER project, research and parent program evaluation, and collaboration with agencies and organizations on parenting issues.

The Texas Council on Family Relations is a state affiliate of the National Council on Family Relations, founded in 1938 as a forum for family researchers, educators, and practitioners to share in the development and dissemination of knowledge about families and family relationships.  NCFR establishes professional standards and works to promote family well-being.
