Child care funding

June 6, 2007 at 12:49 pm 2 comments

More than 60% of U.S. families have both parents in the labor force and need child care in order to make a living. Studies show that early learning and good child care are critical to children’s short- and long-term success. Yet about 150,000 low-income children have lost federal child care assistance since 2001. And if current funding trends continue, 300,000 more children will lose their assistance by the end of the decade. Visit Moms Rising via this link to urge Congress to make child care funding for low-income families a priority. America must invest in early care, not just because it’s necessary for families, but because each child is precious to society as a whole; they represent the future productive engine of our economy and communities.

    Taking care about children is necessary. You are well-done, that have mentioned about this worldwide problem in your blog. More people will think about it and do at least a little bit, the life of children will become better. Thank you
