On the Home Front: Early Care and Education a Top Priority for Military Families
Coleman, Alice
Pew Center on the States
Military parents with young children report that the need for early care and education services, including high-quality pre-kindergarten, tops their list of day-to-day needs. Frequent relocations and the cycle of deployment--preparation, separation and reunification--all cause disruptions that can have profound emotional and educational consequences for children in military households. This issue brief from Pre-K Now details the results of an Internet survey of 500 military households exploring the challenges facing military families with young children. (Contains 8 endnotes.)
