Katha Pollitt wants to see something different from Democrat politicians: “Free public college, health care for all, a living wage: These are all important causes that will improve life for millions. But there’s another proposal that belongs on the progressive to-do list: universal affordable high-quality child care.” The same is true here in Australia. Real support for early childhood education would lift a major financial burden from families, help to equalise the gender gap in pay and participation, and have major educational benefits for the next generations of children. The best way to promote the change that is needed is to support the United Voice Big Steps campaign.
