Which young children benefit from supervised, subsidized early childhood education?01.07.2022
Supervised and subsidized early childhood education frameworks promise compliance with standards of care and safety and can help deal with social inequality, but not all children in Israel are able to benefit from them. In the last decade, the proportion of children in early childhood who participate in such frameworks has risen sharply. However, children from the Arab population, half of whom live in poverty, participate at lower rates. What can be done about this? The Taub Center has formulated a series of policy alternatives that will help overcome the many barriers that prevent Arab children from participating in supervised and subsidized frameworks and contribute to their social advancement.
