Vox News: Why the US doesn’t have universal child care (anymore)
Check out this excellent Vox News video history of child care in the United States.
“President Richard Nixon set us on a path where any kind of federal child care policy would be as underfunded and stigmatized as possible. It’s a system that reinforces and deepens inequalities of race, gender, and class . . . But just because we’re on that path does not mean we can’t change it.” — Anna Danziger Halperin, child care historian
