Back to Skills

With federal stimulus funds set to be released to states this summer, how can reporters prepare to cover and track developments in the essential early care and education sector?

As the field seeks to recover from the pandemic, experts offered guidance on what to watch for during a May 5 session at the Education Writers Association’s 2021 National Seminar. They also suggested story ideas for education journalists to explore in the year ahead.

The participants were:

  • Katie Hamm, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • Caitlin McLean, Center for the Study of Child Care Employment
  • Rochelle Wilcox, Wilcox Academy of Early Learning
  • Jackie Mader, The Hechinger Report (Moderator)
