Childcare as a common good. It may sound extreme to some, but... is it really? We have K-12 free, public school education... why should childcare and early education 0-5 be different? In his book, Crawling Behind, America's Childcare Crisis and How to Fix It, education policy expert Elliot Haspel presents this and other arguments and ideas on how we can improve childcare in the United States.
In this conversation Diana and Elliot discuss why childcare should be seen as common good, why parents need to talk about their experiences and hardships finding accessible and affordable childcare, and more!
