The Hill: The Biden administration must think globally about child care
July 1, 2021
From the op-ed:
The Biden administration has made an essential and unprecedented push to make it easier for families to afford quality child care. They’ve argued that access to child care will help parents, particularly women, get back to work and help economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
Access to affordable child care is a vital part of the Biden domestic policy agenda, and for a good reason: Good child care policies have the potential to change the equation for children, their caregivers, and the U.S. economy. If the Biden administration wants to close the long-standing gender gaps, it also needs to think globally, and its child care agenda needs to extend beyond the United State’s borders.
