President Trump made reducing the cost of child care one of his most detailed platform planks during the campaign. While questions remain about the new administration's early care and education policy agenda for the coming year, state and local policymakers across the country have made early childhood programs more accessible and affordable for working families. All of this comes as our nation is raising the most diverse generation of Americans yet.
What will the new administration’s early care and education policies be? What can Washington learn from states and cities that have expanded access to early childhood programs? In this Next America forum, The Atlantic will convene key policymakers, local officials, stakeholders and experts to examine the future of early care and education policy.
