Why Do Parents Pay So Much if Providers Make So Little?
August 14, 2018
It's difficult to unlearn behaviors that made us successful in the past speaking rather than listening; valuing people like yourself over people of different genders or from different cultures; doing things on your own rather than collaborating; making the decision yourself instead of asking different people for their perspectives. There's a whole range of behaviors that were highly functional in the hierarchical organization that are dead wrong in the flatter, more responsive, empowered organization that we're seeking to become.
-Robert Haas

This is oh so true. The numbers seem fairly accurate. Interesting, though; I have a military family receiving assistance through Child Care Aware whose help is being reduced if not eliminated because CCA has not been funded. I hope they are lobbying for their own behalf

Why is only focus put on preschool child care workers? School-age child care workers are feeling the same effects and also need the support. In most cases we work off carts and struggle everyday to provide a caring and nurturing environment.
