OPINION: Home-based child care providers deserve better

It’s time to recognize this undervalued and underfunded sector

All sectors of the care economy need more resources, but caregivers working as home-based child care providers, who are disproportionately women of color, need the most.

“When white folks are suffering” - Andrea Perry This guy is a clown and a piece of 💩 ...bitch bitch bitch and bitch that’s all you liberal as*holes do
If you are all about education how about correcting the caption under the picture of the principal? It should read “an Avoyelles” not “a Avoyelles”.
When I am more into education in USA I wonder what kind of society the really are because when we see on the news Washington invaded, blocked or impose sanctions on say Venezuela, Syria or Iran because the say those countries have no democracy and fail ti give well being to their own citizens. I read black people, brown people, colored people, Latinos all the racial rainbow of humankind. We almost forget we are talking about `CHILDREN` American children born in the USA. Worst when I read more of the teachers `ARE WHITE` What does it mean Are they saying white teachers CAN NOT TEACH COLORED CHILDREN. It is little known by American people that at college, master and PhD level 80 percent of students ARE FOREIGNERS. And the best are Asians. If I were a white teacher at high school or college I would be very worried by these FACTS. But as an outsider with education labor and policy creator mostly in Special Education I can say answers ARE NOT AMONG TEACHERS WHITE OR ELSE BUT IN SAME AMERICAN PEOPLE who believe in `WE THE PEOPLE` our FOUNDATION Fathers gave Us as our Legacy. As Enoch saw when he was in the Glory of God. Just summer reflections cause by high temperatures. Maybe just need a cold lemonade. Thanks for listening me. 😍
