This issue of Our Schools / Our Selves takes stock of where we are and where we need to be in the child care debates, in the lead-up to a national election that is very much about how we care for our children and how we support families in that task.

It brings together researchers,activists and analysts to provide a thoughtful, nuanced, accessible overview of the key issues in the effort to build a national child care program that responds to and meets the needs of kids from coast to coast to coast; one that is stable, adequately-funded, and helps to build vibrant, equitable, empowered, compassionate, cohesive communities.
