Twitter Chat: Early Education as an Infrastructure Issue

Event Date: 
Tuesday, August 27, 2019 - 2:00pm

How is investment in early education and care an infrastructure issue?

The U.S. Chamber Foundation, in partnership with the Bipartisan Policy Center, will convene online in a Twitter Chat to make the case for the development of early childhood education and care facilities to be a part of infrastructure conversations happening at the regional, state, or local levels. The budgets for infrastructure go towards the development and improvement of roads and new real estate. When families often drive 45 minutes to get access to a high-quality, affordable childcare facility, we think those real estate developers should consider childcare facilities as a solid investment in any new development.

Join us to discuss the current facility challenges and shortages across the country, and how partnerships with city planners, architects, and real estate developers can lead to high-quality facilities that families can afford and easily find.
