Our “Voices from the Field” seeks to amplify the experiences of families, educators, and child care providers while placing those voices at the center of our advocacy. At GEEARS, we recognize the invaluable insights that parents, teachers, and caregivers can provide to policymakers and other leaders. “Voices from the Field” aims to bridge the gap between grassroots experiences and policy formation. This webpage serves as a platform for the diverse voices gathered through extensive research—including focus groups and surveys—from those closest to the challenges we aim to address.

 

Join us in lifting the voices of families and educators by using our social press kit.
