Education Tele-Town Hall: Early Childhood Education – Taking Care of the Caretakers
As advocates and providers of Early Childhood Education, the Urban League of Louisiana and The Education Trust hosted a second Education Tele-Town Hall “Early Childhood Education: Taking Care of the Caretakers” on Tuesday, June 9.
The Early Childhood Education (ECE) sector has experienced significant and unique challenges dealing with and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. After years of advocating for increased funding and access, childcare centers and organizations that support them now face difficult questions about re-opening, the status of funding, and whether ECE programs will be able to sustain after months of being closed.
