Media: In Healey’s child-care push, advocates have made their voices heard

In a letter to the Boston Globe in response to news of Governor Maura Healey’s plan to reform the state’s system of reimbursement for early care and education providers who accept Child Fare Financial Assistance, Executive Director Anne Douglass, PhD highlighted the advocacy role played by early educators in moving public debate around funding for early education forward.

Excerpt: “The COVID-19 pandemic is often credited with raising public awareness that “child care is a linchpin” for the economy, as Healey said. But from the earliest days of the pandemic, early educators have been testifying at State House hearings, speaking out at press conferences, and joining early education advocacy organizations such as Strategies for Children to ensure that their voices are heard.”
