Help Prevent Harmful Limits on Child Care Eligibility
Access to affordable, reliable child care is often essential in ensuring that adult students are able to complete their education and secure the types of jobs that lead to greater economic security. Yet, the Department of Early Education and Care is considering new regulations that would limit eligibility for child care subsidies for parents enrolled in high school equivalency or ESOL classes to just one year's time.
You can help stop the Department from creating another barrier that adults have to overcome to acquire the education and skills they need. If you are enrolled in a HSE or ESOL class and receive state child care subsidies and would be willing to speak at a public hearing about these regulations on Tuesday, June 12, in Boston, please contact MCAE's Director, Jeff McLynch, at either 617.482.6223 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, if you have students in this situation and would be willing to speak publicly on their behalf, we'd love to hear from you too!
