What's Missing in Child Care and Early Education in America

More than 11 million American children spend time in non-parental care each day. Millions of families rely on some aspect of America's publicly funded programs for their children as they go to work. Most are looking for a high-quality setting in which their children can learn. Yet, current situations fail too many families. The cost of care is too high while salaries for staff are too low. There are gaps in the regulatory oversight and in the quality of care, and there is too little learning for too many children. Moreover, the fiscal pressures on states and the federal government are preventing investments of public support. For more information on the event: http://www.newamerica.net/events/2011/child_care
