Overview

According to a 2018 survey by the New York Times, the reason given by most people who had fewer children than they would have liked was the cost of childcare. In the U.S., the expense to bring up a child from birth until kindergarten is so high that it's contributing to a 30-year low in birthrates.

Eliot Haspel is a childhood education policy expert and co-founder of the nonprofit Education Success Network. In this book, Haspel takes a look at America's broken childcare system and what can be done about it.

The lack of affordable care keeps women out of the workforce and leaves children with subpar care during their most critical developmental years. In proposing free universal childcare, Crawling Behind makes the case that its benefits will pay for themselves in the long run.

"Childcare should be a common good. Childcare should be an unconditional right. Childcare should be free for families."
