As Congress prepares to debate passage of the Build Back Better Act, aspects of the $1.75 billion spending proposal hold the potential to fundamentally transform America’s early care and education landscape – creating universal prekindergarten for 3- and 4-year-olds, expanding access to affordable, high-quality child care, and addressing the compensation needs of the early childhood workforce.
In preparation, The Hunt Institute has released Childcare and Prekindergarten in The Build Back Better Act: A Guide for Policymakers, which condenses roughly 100 pages of pertinent bill language into six pages of question and answer-style summary.
We will update this document regularly as the Act works its way through the legislative process. Click the document below to read the resource.
