An integrated, efficient early care and education (ECE) system is essential to support children and families. While many federal programs provide funding for ECE, each state plays an important role in ensuring their system’s effectiveness and efficiency. Governors are responsible for administering the federal funds their state receives – and their decisions have practical implications on the lives of children and families receiving services.
BPC’s report, Creating an Integrated Efficient Early care and Education System to Support Children and Families: A State by State Analysis, eviews, scores, and ranks how each state manages their funding to determine the efficiency of their ECE system, which can help families with young children access the programs and services they need.
This webinar will be led by Linda Smith, Director of BPC’s Early Childhood Initiative. The presentation will be from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., followed by 30 minutes of audience Q&A.
