America’s Fragile Child Care System Reported at Risk of Collapse in COVID-19 crisis

The Washington Post, May 27, 2020: “Child care experts say they are increasingly concerned America’s child-care system, fragile even before the coronavirus pandemic, is in danger of collapse without substantial help from Congress.

The issue affects not just the nearly 12 million children under age 5 and their families who rely on providers for care but also is a factor in how quickly the U.S. economy can recover from the crisis. Although we hear much more about this concern in regard to the reopening of K-12 schools, the same basic problem holds true for working parents who have young children: If they have to stay home to take care of their kids, they can’t return, or give full attention, to their jobs.”
