Universal child care: A risky experiment with our nation's children


This commentary is part of an ongoing discussion about the possibility of implementing public universal child care in the United States. This is a rebuttal to Elliot Haspel's claims of a "research consensus" of the harmlessness of nonparental child care. The authors identify concerns with the research used by others to argue for a dismissal of concerns about potential harms. They mention multiple child outcomes within each discussed report, and address the issue of different outcomes in children from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
