New report suggests early childhood education is essential to maintaining workforce
The report found that child supports, like early childhood education and healthcare, are largely handled at the state level - meaning the amount of support varied widely between states.
Mark Wietecha is with the CEO of the association. He said supporting early childhood development is a good way to get ahead of the problem.
“We need 100% if we can of the kids that are out there to be productive and engaged human beings. If we’ve got a scale back in healthcare and education that’s going to increase the number of kids that can’t engage.”
