The Picard Center would like to acknowledge the recent work and successes of Dr. Raymond Biggar.
Developing policy in Early Childhood Education is one of the areas of expertise at the Picard Center. A recent op-ed piece has been released in reference to the concerns of early childcare. The author of the article is Matthew Melmed, Executive Director for Zero to Three, an advocacy group that focuses on resources for childcare, education, and policy (www.zerotothree.org). Despite the article being set in Ohio, the concern for high childcare costs and quality care affects many Louisiana residents as well. This is something we consider when developing policy for Louisiana educators. Please read and share!
