Illinois Commission on Equitable Early Childhood Education and Care Funding: Commission report of findings and recommendations

The Commission strongly recommends that the State seize this moment to reimagine and adequately invest in a system that leads with racial equity; prioritizes community and stakeholder engagement in decision-making at the program, community, and state levels; ensures quality and access to comprehensive early childhood education and care (ECEC) experiences; and provides transparency and accountability. To operationalize our vision and make it sustainable, the Commission offers three specific recommendations to make ECEC work better for Illinois children, families, and providers. We acknowledge implementing these will be a heavy lift, especially in light of the state’s current economic realities, but we also acknowledge the urgency of our charge and the timing, given the need to address racial and economic injustice related to child and family access, quality, cost of services, and child outcomes.
