He cited studies showing that children receiving quality early care are more likely to be successful in school, become better citizens and earn more. You can read his full opinion piece at Politico.
“Workforce: All of our efforts are only as good as the people who execute them, but many of the people in our early-childhood workforce cannot afford to increase their qualifications. In Delaware, we offer scholarships to early-learning staff to support additional education; we’re invested in increased compensation for those with additional education who work in our top programs; and we’re training more licensed behavioral health specialists.”
