Study calls for more child care centers at 2-year-colleges

WASHINGTON, D.C. (USANN4)–A new report says that greater access to child care could help more students graduate.   It was conducted by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.   The study says that greater access to on-campus child care services would increase opportunities for low-income students who are also parents to complete their post-secondary education.

It goes on to say that the percentage of two- and four-year colleges with on-site child care centers declined from 2002 to 2009.   Even though a large number of students at community colleges are parents, those institutions are less likely to have on-site child care than four-year schools.
