Universal Preschool- What does that really entail?

Featured in EdSource, Mancy Whitebook article "Staffing a Universal Preschool Program Will be No Small Task," proposes possible implications involved with implementing Obama's universal preschool program.  Take a look at the article. Do you agree with her beliefs regarding early educators' compensation? Professional development?

Having a Job Doesn’t Pay the Child Care Bills?

This article on CNNMoney today really made me arch an eyebrow? It’s the complete opposite side of the story, do you buy it? I also think this is a perfect case for why employer-sponsored child care should be enacted. It may not work for every employer, but the conversation needs to start. A message such as this not only sets women back in the job market, by staying home, it sets families (some families) back in terms of small luxuries like taking a vacation. And for kids that do have stay-at-home moms, are they just being cared for…or are they missing out on stimulating early childhood education experiences in preschool?

We know you have an opinion, share it with us!
