"The child advocacy non-profit, Hawaii Children’s Action Network’s Director of Public Policy and Research Kathleen Algire thought the loss of the classes would be detrimental to children, families and educators.
'Especially after this session where there was such a focus on access to early learning . . . that we’re cutting seven preschool classes. I think it’s a huge disservice,' Algire said.
This comes on the heels of Hi-CAN's recent findings where about 60% of 700 Hawaii parents surveyed said their employer would not offer flexible hours to meet their children’s school and child care schedule."
