Megan McMillan has known for some time the importance of quality childcare and how difficult it can be to find it in the Portland area. The pandemic has also taught mothers like you how hard it is to do without it. “???? After trying to work from home full time with two children under five, I can tell you without a doubt that childcare is work that allows all other jobs, â ???? McMillan said. THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR: Become a sponsor. The growing consensus that childcare is a necessary part of a functioning economy. and that Oregon’s patchwork of vendors isn’t up to the job? has pushed elected leaders from Salem to Washington, DC to pursue big changes. Oregon state and national leaders are pushing for large investments and structural changes in childcare, pointing out inequalities and gaps in support for young children. Problems that have been exacerbated by the years of pandemic. At the state level, Oregon lawmakers have completely revamped the establishment of programs for the state’s youngest children by creating a new early learning agency with the support of the governor’s office and children’s advocacy groups. At the same time in Congress, Oregon Democratic Senators Ron Wyden and Representatives Suzanne Bonamici and Earl Blumenauer extol plans to make huge investments in expanding childcare support across the country. Members of Congress said at a news conference Friday outside a childcare center in Portland that they are working with the Biden Administration to expand childcare options while increasing the incomes of the historically poorly paid workforce of providers. Justice and Infrastructure Advocates and elected officials present the push to childcare in terms of equity, economic development and as part of an expanded definition of what “infrastructure” is. means. “It’s important to families and it’s important to our economy too.” Said Bonamici. “Childcare is infrastructure.” In economic terms, childcare took a hit during the pandemic. But proponents in Oregon and elsewhere say last year’s troubles highlighted issues affecting centers and preschools for years. “This is a subject that is finally getting the attention it deserves. Blumenauer said at the press conference on Friday. Childcare in Oregon was in short supply everywhere, and every county was classified as a “childcare desert”. according to a 2019 analysis by Oregon State University. And that was before the pandemic shut down more than half of the providers in the state, at least temporarily. The result is that simple childcare is hard to find and even harder to afford. “The cost of caring for two children under the age of five is almost double what I pay for their accommodation. Parent Megan McMillan said, adding that finding quality childcare that she can afford can be “a full-time job in addition to my already full-time job.” Sen. Wyden said Friday that what is facing Oregon and other parts of the country is a supply-side challenge. We need to increase the availability of childcare facilities. a???? Said Wyden. Oregon’s Senator, and now chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, pointed to a $ 700 billion proposal that he is supporting with Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts, called the University Child Care and Early Learning Act. The massive spending proposal follows a more modest, but still significant, federal investment of $ 40 billion from the US bailout. Federal government recognition of childcare under the CARES bill, passed under the Trump administration, amounted to $ 3.5 billion in block grants for childcare providers. At the same time, childcare can be scarce and too expensive, your employees a ???? Teacher, supervisor? tend to be underpaid. Bonamici, who calls herself the only “congressional mom” in the delegation, the need for a living wage in childcare has been linked to efforts to support color communities. “It’s also about racial justice.” Said Bonamici. “Colored families have income disparities that make quality care even less affordable, and early childhood educators are disproportionately color-coded and work like that.” too often â ???? to live in poverty. Bonamici called for President Biden’s American family plan to be adopted, which the President highlighted in his first address at a joint congressional session last week. Under the spending clauses of Biden’s $ 1.8 trillion proposal, there is a cap on the amount middle- and low-income families will pay for childcare. THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR: Become a sponsor, Oregon suggests a new childcare agency have learned that funding is only part of the problem. The state childcare system is a patchwork of privately paid centers, Head Start programs, and school-based pre-kindergartens, as well as informal networks of nannies, relatives, and friends. State management of childcare is also a mosaic of different authorities responsible for regulation and spending. Oregon HB 3073 aims to consolidate early childhood programs under one roof called the Department of Early Learning and Care (DELC). Currently, much of the guidelines and regulations for programs for preschoolers reside in the Early Learning Department, established eight years ago in the Oregon Department of Education. But the state’s largest government childcare grant is the employment-based day care program – is in the Human Services department. Elected officials say an earlier round of significant federal spending highlighted shortcomings in the current structure and the fledgling early learning department. In the spring of 2020, daycare centers struggled to stay afloat as the pandemic wreaked havoc on Oregon’s economy, raising questions about how to care for children safely and in ways that businesses can financially manage. Millions of dollars came to Oregon to help daycare centers stay open, but providers say the money seemed to be dribbling slowly, with too many rules and too little support and guidance. “We saw during the pandemic that it was there was the $ 70 million we had put aside for childcare and we had real problems figuring that out. said Rep. Jack Zika, R-Redmond, at a House Rules Committee public hearing on HB 3073. “???? And we found that the need really was within the department.” ???? HB 3073 is a long calculation, but its main goal is to create the DELC as a standalone agency with its own top administrator reporting directly to the governor. Karin Power, D-Milwaukie, said the ultimate idea of ​​restructuring is to meet children and help families recover from the pandemic and thrive. it] will enable Oregon and our agency, which oversees policy but does not currently oversee most of the funding spending, to direct those functions so that we have one agency under one roof that both sets policy for the state and does also spends dollars to effect this policy, ???? Power announced this to the regulatory committee this week. The bill was passed to Ways and Means by the regulatory committee, but not without questions from the Republican legislature. While Representatives Zika and Power said the bill was necessary to efficiently manage the policy and spending functions of the state childcare agency, Rep. Christine Drazan, questioned the cost of the bureaucratic shuffle. a creation of what is basically a brand new agency, and the tax implications on that are not negligible as much of the expansion seems … ineligible for federal funding. Said Drazan. She had one word for putting $ 800 million, including all funds, into an agency that had been in existence for less than a decade: “Amazing.” She followed up by saying she was “?” ??? excited it goes to Ways and Meansâ ???? where the invoice will receive a more thorough financial analysis. Zika said he initially had a similar sticker shock but said he felt better when he realized that much of the prize was actually moving money from multiple locations into one. “???? We don’t really spend that much money, we just move it, ???? Zika said. In addition, Zika argued that given the billions the state spends on K-12 and the developmental importance of the early years to a child’s success, it is money well spent. Drazan and Rep. Daniel Bonham, R-The Dalles, made another point: a principle really. They asked whether investing in childcare is based on an assumption: elected executives would rather have children cared for outside the home during the day than by family members. “We subsidize day care for people. Who needs what I understand, but at the same time almost signals that we prefer this method of child care? Bonham remembered his own experiences with a mother who stayed home. The Democrats on the Rules Committee also had an answer to this problem: paid parental leave. Committee chairwoman Rep. Barbara Smith Warner, D-Portland, noted that paying a parent to stay home for extended periods of time to raise children is well established in some parts of the world. “The importance of this role? I would be happy to work on such a concept because it was a decision that I made myself and that I had the luxury of making. Smith Warner said: In 2019, Oregon became the eighth state in the country to pass a family vacation law that can be used by new parents. It goes into effect in 2023, and its permissible uses include a new parent staying home with a child – ???? for up to 12 weeks.

Rob Manning is a news editor at Oregon Public Broadcasting, with oversight of reporters covering education, healthcare and business. Rob became an editor in 2019, following about 15 years covering schools and universities in Oregon and southwest Washington as OPB’s education reporter.

Megan McMillan weiß seit einiger Zeit, wie wichtig eine qual itativ hochwertige Kinderbetreuung ist und wie schwierig es sein kann, sie in der Region Portland zu finden. Die Pandemie lehrte auch Mütter wie sie, wie schwer es ist, ohne sie auszukommen.

“Nach langjährigen Versuchen, mit zwei Kindern unter fünf Jahren ganztägig von zu Hause aus zu arbeiten, kann ich Ihnen ohne Zweifel sagen, dass Kinderbetreuung die Arbeit ist, die alle anderen Arbeiten ermöglicht” Sagte McMillan.

Der wachsende Konsens, dass Kinderbetreuung ein notwendiger Bestandteil einer funktionierenden Wirtschaft ist und dass Oregons Patchwork von Anbietern nicht dem Job gewachsen ist? hat gewählte Führer von Salem nach Washington DC gedrängt, um große Veränderungen zu verfolgen.

Die Staats- und Regierungschefs von Oregon auf staatlicher und nationaler Ebene drängen auf größere Investitionen und strukturelle Veränderungen in der Kinderbetreuung und weisen auf Ungleichheiten und Lücken bei der Unterstützung kleiner Kinder hin. Probleme, die durch die jahrelange Pandemie noch verschärft wurden.

Auf Bundesstaatsebene haben die Gesetzgeber in Oregon die Unterstützung von Programmen für die jüngsten Kinder des Bundesstaates durch die Schaffung einer neuen Agentur für frühes Lernen mit Unterstützung des Gouverneurs grundlegend überarbeitet Büro- und Kindervertretergruppen.

Zur gleichen Zeit im Kongress preisen die Senatoren der Demokraten von Oregon, Ron Wyden, und die Abgeordneten Suzanne Bonamici und Earl Blumenauer Pläne, große Investitionen in die Ausweitung der Unterstützung für die Kinderbetreuung im ganzen Land zu tätigen. Die Kongressmitglieder sagten auf einer Pressekonferenz am Freitag vor einem Kinderbetreuungszentrum in Portland, dass sie mit der Biden Administration zusammenarbeiten, um das Angebot an Kinderbetreuung zu erweitern und gleichzeitig das Einkommen der historisch schlecht bezahlten Belegschaft von Anbietern zu steigern.

Anwälte und gewählte Beamte stellen den Vorstoß zur Kinderbetreuung in Bezug auf Gerechtigkeit, wirtschaftliche Entwicklung und als Teil einer erweiterten Definition der “Infrastruktur” vor. meint.

“Es ist wichtig für Familien und es ist auch wichtig für unsere Wirtschaft” Sagte Bonamici. “Kinderbetreuung ist Infrastruktur.”

In wirtschaftlicher Hinsicht wurde die Kinderbetreuung während der Pandemie geschlagen. Befürworter in Oregon und anderswo sagen jedoch, dass die Schwierigkeiten des letzten Jahres Probleme hervorgehoben haben, von denen Zentren und Vorschulen seit Jahren betroffen sind.

“Dies ist ein Thema, das endlich die Aufmerksamkeit erhält, die es verdient” Blumenauer sagte auf der Pressekonferenz am Freitag.

Die Kinderbetreuung in Oregon war überall Mangelware, und jeder Landkreis wurde als “Kinderbetreuungswüste” eingestuft. nach einer Analyse von 2019 von der Oregon State University. Und das war, bevor die Pandemie mehr als die Hälfte der Anbieter im Staat schloss, zumindest vorübergehend. Das Ergebnis ist, dass eine einfache Kinderbetreuung schwer zu finden und noch schwerer zu leisten ist.

“Die Kosten für die Kinderbetreuung von zwei Kindern unter fünf Jahren sind fast doppelt so hoch wie die, die ich für die Unterbringung bezahle” Elternteil Megan McMillan sagte und fügte hinzu, dass die Suche nach einer qualitativ hochwertigen Kinderbetreuung, die sie sich leisten kann, ein “Vollzeitjob zusätzlich zu meinem bereits Vollzeitjob” sein kann.

Senator Wyden sagte am Freitag, dass das, was Oregon und anderen Teilen des Landes gegenübersteht, eine “angebotsseitige Herausforderung” ist.

“Wir müssen das Angebot an Kinderbetreuungseinrichtungen erhöhen” Sagte Wyden. Oregons Senator und jetzt Vorsitzender des mächtigen Finanzausschusses des Senats wies auf einen 700-Milliarden-Dollar-Vorschlag hin, den er mit Senatorin Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, unterstützt, genannt University Child Care and Early Learning Act.

Der massive Ausgabenvorschlag folgt einer bescheideneren, aber immer noch bedeutenden Bundesinvestition von 40 Milliarden US-Dollar aus dem amerikanischen Rettungsplan. Die Anerkennung der Kinderbetreuung durch die Bundesregierung belief sich im Rahmen des unter der Trump-Administration verabschiedeten CARES-Gesetzes auf Blockzuschüsse in Höhe von 3,5 Milliarden US-Dollar für Kinderbetreuer.

Zur gleichen Zeit, in der Kinderbetreuung knapp und zu teuer sein kann, sind ihre Mitarbeiter â ???? Lehrer, Betreuer? neigen dazu, unterbezahlt zu sein. Bonamici, die sich die einzige “Kongressmama” nennt In der Delegation wurde die Notwendigkeit eines existenzsichernden Lohns in der Kinderbetreuung mit den Bemühungen zur Unterstützung von Farbgemeinschaften in Verbindung gebracht.

“Es ist auch eine Frage der Rassengerechtigkeit” Sagte Bonamici. “Familien mit Farbe haben Einkommensunterschiede, die eine qualitativ hochwertige Versorgung noch weniger erschwinglich machen, und frühkindliche Erzieher sind überproportional Frauen mit Farbe und arbeiten so.” zu oft â ???? in Armut leben. “????

Bonamici forderte die Verabschiedung des amerikanischen Familienplans von Präsident Biden, den der Präsident letzte Woche in seiner ersten Ansprache auf einer gemeinsamen Kongresssitzung hervorhob. Zu den Ausgabenbestimmungen von Bidens 1,8 Billionen US-Dollar-Vorschlag gehört eine Obergrenze für den Betrag, den Familien mit mittlerem und niedrigem Einkommen für die Kinderbetreuung zahlen.

Auf Bundesstaatsebene haben Beamte aus Oregon erfahren, dass die Finanzierung nur ein Teil des Problems ist. Das staatliche Kinderbetreuungssystem ist ein Flickenteppich aus privat bezahlten Zentren, Head Start-Programmen und schulbasierten Vorkindergärten sowie informellen Netzwerken von Kindermädchen, Verwandten und Freunden. Das staatliche Management der Kinderbetreuung ist auch ein Mosaik mit verschiedenen Behörden, die sich um Regulierung und Ausgaben kümmern.

Oregon HB 3073 zielt darauf ab, frühkindliche Programme unter einem Dach zu konsolidieren, das als Department of Early Learning and Care (DELC) bezeichnet wird. Derzeit liegt ein Großteil der Richtlinien und Vorschriften für Programme für Kinder im Vorschulalter in der Abteilung für frühes Lernen, die vor acht Jahren im Bildungsministerium von Oregon eingerichtet wurde. Aber der größte staatliche Kinderbetreuungszuschuss des Staates das beschäftigungsbezogene Tagesbetreuungsprogramm â ???? ist in der Abteilung für Human Services.

Gewählte Beamte sagen, eine frühere Runde bedeutender Bundesausgaben habe Mängel in der gegenwärtigen Struktur und in der noch jungen Abteilung für frühes Lernen hervorgehoben.

Im Frühjahr 2020 hatten Kindertagesstätten Probleme, über Wasser zu bleiben, da die Pandemie die Wirtschaft Oregons verwüstete und Fragen aufwirft, wie Kinder sicher und auf eine Weise betreut werden können, die die Unternehmen finanziell verwalten können. Millionen von Dollar kamen nach Oregon, um Kindertagesstätten offen zu halten, aber die Anbieter sagen, dass das Geld langsam, mit zu vielen Regeln und zu wenig Unterstützung und Anleitung heraus zu dribbeln schien.

“Wir haben während der Pandemie gesehen, dass es die 70 Millionen Dollar gab, die wir für die Kinderbetreuung bereitgestellt hatten, und wir hatten echte Probleme, das herauszubekommen.” sagte Rep. Jack Zika, R-Redmond, bei einer öffentlichen Anhörung zu HB 3073 vor dem House Rules Committee.

HB 3073 ist eine langwierige Rechnung, aber ihr Hauptziel ist die Schaffung des DELC als eigenständige Agentur mit einem eigenen Top-Administrator, der direkt an den Gouverneur berichtet.

Abgeordnete Karin Power, D-Milwaukie, sagte, die Idee der Umstrukturierung sei letztendlich, Kinder zu treffen und Familien zu helfen, sich von der Pandemie zu erholen und zu gedeihen.

Langfristig wird [es] Oregon und unsere Agentur positionieren, die die Politik überwacht, aber derzeit den Großteil der Finanzierungsausgaben nicht überwacht, um diese Funktionen so auszurichten, dass wir unter einem Dach eine Agentur haben dass beide Richtlinien für den Staat festlegen und Dollars ausgeben, um diese Richtlinien zu verwirklichen? Power teilte dem Regelungsausschuss diese Woche mit.

Der Gesetzentwurf wurde vom Regelungsausschuss an Ways and Means weitergegeben, jedoch nicht ohne Fragen des republikanischen Gesetzgebers zu stellen.

Während die Abgeordneten Zika und Power sagten, die Gesetzesvorlage sei notwendig, um die Politik und die Ausgabenfunktionen der staatlichen Kinderbetreuungsagentur effizient zu verwalten, stellte die Abgeordnete Christine Drazan die Kosten des bürokratischen Shuffle in Frage.

“Dies ist eine massive Rechnung” eine Schaffung einer im Grunde genommen brandneuen Agentur, und die steuerlichen Auswirkungen auf diese sind nicht unerheblich, da ein Großteil der Expansion … nicht für Bundesmittel in Frage zu kommen scheint. Sagte Drazan. Sie hatte ein Wort dafür, 800 Millionen Dollar unter Berücksichtigung aller Mittel in eine Agentur zu stecken, die seit weniger als zehn Jahren besteht: “Erstaunlich”.

Sie folgte dem, indem sie sagte, sie sei “begeistert, dass es zu Wegen und Mitteln geht”. wo die Rechnung eine gründlichere finanzielle Analyse erhalten wird.

Abgeordneter Zika sagte, er habe anfangs einen ähnlichen Aufkleberschock gehabt, sagte aber, er fühle sich besser, als er feststellte, dass ein Großteil des Preises tatsächlich Geld von mehreren Orten in einen verschob.

Ferner argumentierte Zika, dass angesichts der Milliarden, die der Staat für K-12 ausgibt, und der entwicklungspolitischen Bedeutung der frühen Jahre für den Erfolg eines Kindes das Geld gut angelegt ist.

Drazan und Rep. Daniel Bonham, R-The Dalles, sprachen einen weiteren Punkt an: ein Prinzip wirklich. Sie stellten die Frage, ob den Investitionen in die Kinderbetreuung eine Annahme zugrunde liegt: Gewählte Führungskräfte würden Kinder lieber tagsüber außerhalb des Hauses betreuen lassen als von Familienmitgliedern.

“Wir subventionieren die Tagesbetreuung für Leute, die sie brauchen, was ich verstehe, aber gleichzeitig signalisieren wir fast, dass wir diese Methode der Kinderbetreuung bevorzugen” Sagte Bonham und erinnerte sich an seine eigenen Erfahrungen, die er mit einer Mutter gemacht hatte, die zu Hause blieb.

Auch die Demokraten im Regelungsausschuss hatten eine Antwort auf dieses Problem: bezahlter Elternurlaub. Die Vorsitzende des Ausschusses, Abgeordnete Barbara Smith Warner, D-Portland, wies darauf hin, dass es in einigen Teilen der Welt gut etabliert ist, einen Elternteil dafür zu bezahlen, dass er zu Hause bleibt, um Kinder für längere Zeit großzuziehen.

“Es gibt diese Anerkennung der Wichtigkeit dieser Rolle” Ich würde mich freuen, an einem solchen Konzept zu arbeiten, denn das war eine Entscheidung, die ich selbst getroffen habe und die ich den Luxus hatte, zu treffen. Sagte Smith Warner.

Oregon war 2019 der achte Bundesstaat des Landes, der ein Familienurlaubsgesetz verabschiedete, das von neuen Eltern angewendet werden kann. Es tritt im Jahr 2023 in Kraft, und zu seinen zulässigen Verwendungszwecken gehört, dass ein neuer Elternteil mit einem Kind zu Hause bleibt – ???? für bis zu 12 Wochen.

Der American Families Plan würde die kostenlose öffentliche Bildung erweitern und die Kinderbetreuung erschwinglicher machen. Das Weiße Haus will für die Maßnahme zahlen, indem es die Steuern auf die reichsten des Landes erhöht.

Der neue Bericht, der von Oregons Abteilung für frühes Lernen in Auftrag gegeben wurde, stellte fest, dass COVID-19 im vergangenen Jahr erhebliche Auswirkungen auf Kinderbetreuer hatte.
