You're (Still) Not Crazy. Childcare Is.
Play • 46 min

Listen again as Gloria breaks down how we’re all breaking down: parents, teachers, and child care providers. And Kristen Bell joins to “call it like it is” on the cost of child care. Parents are languishing on waitlists or drowning in tuition bills. Teachers are underpaid. And providers can barely afford to keep the lights on. “We set families up to struggle. We put every barrier we can in their way. And then when they do need assistance, we demonize them as though they've done something wrong and they haven't.” With Lauren Kennedy, Sarah Muncey, and parents, teachers, and administrators from Ellis Early Education Center in Boston, MA.
