President Obama has announced his plans to make quality child care and early education more affordable for families. 3 main themes include:
- Making a landmark investment in the Child Care and Development Fund that helps every eligible family with young children afford high-quality child care.
- Tripling the maximum child care tax credit to $3,000 per young child.
- Creating a new innovation fund to help states design programs that better serve families that face unique challenges in finding quality care, such as those in rural areas or working non-traditional hours.
There seemed to be an equal amount of cynicism and excitement about the President's announcement during the State of the Union (SOTU) address. Does the Fact Sheet of his plan make you feel like it is a plausible change? Share in the comments, and remember, please share your opinion in a respectful manner.
