|From the Reporter|
|In San Diego County and across California, severely slackened inspection rules leave children in preschools or child care less protected from undetected safety lapses than kids elsewhere.|
|State inspections used to happen annually. Now they can occur just twice a decade.|
|What It Means|
|The state has fallen short of a bar that national experts say is perilously low in the first place. A national association recommends that child care programs be visited four times a year, 20 times more often than California requires. It ranked California 50th out of 52 states and districts in child care licensing and oversight.|
