  • Combining multiple types of child care | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    recent study by IGPA expert Rachel Gordon and colleagues Anna Colaner Margaret L Usdansky and Claudia Melgar suggests that this distinction may not fully capture what parents want and use The article titled Beyond an Either Or Approach to Home and Center Based Child Care Comparing Children and Families who Combine Care Types with Those Who Use Just One was published in Early Childhood Research Quarterly The research was supported in part by the National Institute of Health Read the article here The researchers looked at children s attendance of more than one type of child care with the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study Birth Cohort a nationally representative sample drawn from vital statistics birth records Major findings include About one fifth of 4 year olds attend both home and center based child care Families who combined home and center care appeared to be meeting their priorities for both getting their child ready for school and having a familiar caregiver who shared their background and beliefs This finding is based on parents reports about reasons for choosing care Perceived good child care choices in the community is also associated with combining care versus using only home based child care This suggests supply may be important for achieving preferred arrangements Children who attended centers alone or in combination with home based child care averaged higher reading and math scores than children cared for in homes either by parents or in non parental arrangements This suggests there are benefits for academic readiness associated with attending center care pre K that can be achieved even for kids combining it part time with family child care The researchers encourage more research on how and why parents combine multiple types of care and children s experiences in these settings One innovative program warranting more research attention

  • U of I Flash Index starts off strong in 2015 | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    January from its 106 5 level in December The Illinois economy continues to improve as we enter 2015 This month builds on almost three years of slow and steady growth in which the index remained well above 100 the dividing line between growth and decline The state s unemployment rate continued a surprisingly strong decline and is getting close to the national rate said J Fred Giertz who compiles the Flash Index for the Institute of Government and Public Affairs The state s rate fell to 6 2 percent compared to 8 9 percent in January 2014 Throughout the recovery Illinois rate has consistently been higher than the national rate However it is now only six tenths of a percentage point above the national average compared with a 2 2 percentage point differential a year ago While there is considerable optimism concerning the economy problems in Europe and slow growth in Asia are still a concern Giertz said GDP growth in the fourth quarter of 2014 was 2 16 percent This is slower than expected and considerably below strong performances in the second and third quarters The sales tax component of the index was virtually unchanged in real terms from the same month last year Individual and corporate income tax receipts were down somewhat from one year ago but comparisons are problematic because both the individual and corporate tax rates declined on January 1 when the state s 2011 tax increase began to ratchet down This is further complicated by the fact that some of the January receipts were based on the old higher 5 percent rate while the remainder was impacted by the new lower rate 3 75 percent The Flash Index is a weighted average of Illinois growth rates in corporate earnings consumer spending and personal income Tax
