This is the February 6, 2020 hearing on "Solving America's Child Care Crisis: Supporting Parents, Children, and the Economy," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education Committee on Education and Labor. From the opening statement of Gregorio Kilili Sablan: "The cost of child care in America has gone up 2,000 percent in the last 40 years--2,000 percent. The average cost of full-time child care is now $16,000 per year and that is about half the median income for a single parent, almost the same as the average annual cost of in-state tuition at a public university. Across America, working parents are struggling to make sure their young children have decent, high-quality child care and at an affordable price. So, this morning, we are here to find out how the Federal Government can better support families around the country find and afford high-quality child care." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Angelica M. Gonzalez, Nancy Harvey, Taryn Morrissey, and Linda Smith.
