A survey from the National Association for the Education of Young Children shows that more than 40% of the nation’s childcare centers will be forced to shut down due the effects of the pandemic unless they receive more funding. Alicia Sasser Modestino’s (PPUA & Economics, Associate Director of the Dukakis Center) research was featured in this Motherly article, indicating how the lack of childcare between May and June impacted parents’ ability to work. The article states how the impacts of a shortage in childcare will only be intensified if childcare centers do not receive additional funding.
