State Of The Child: Beyond The Score

October 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

State Of The Child: Beyond The Score

A recent Florida Chamber Foundation report found that childcare issues result in an annual $5.4 billion dollar loss to Florida’s economy. What does that mean for the future of the Sunshine State?

We’ll answer that question and much more in State Of The Child: Beyond The Score, a special online community forum hosted by United Way Suncoast at 10 a.m. on Oct. 24.

NewsChannel 8 Anchor, Deanne King, will guide a group of expert panelists through a dynamic discussion about the ongoing early learning crisis. We’ll learn how the crisis drives parents out of the workforce, reduces tax revenue for Florida, and puts an undue strain on the state’s households and businesses.

Our panelists will be: State Rep. Fiona McFarland; PrimeGroup Insurance CEO Ed Ellsasser, Children’s Movement of Florida CEO Madeleine Thakur and Association of Early Learning Coalitions executive director Molly Grant.

In State of The Child: Beyond The Score, we’ll also explore how a collaborative effort between the business, education, and government sectors can lift our children above test score debates and political partisanship.

Again, join us for State Of The Child: Beyond the Score at 10 a.m. on Oct. 24.
