Tackling Access to Affordable and Quality Childcare in Burien, WA

In Burien, current child-care benefits are limited and restrictive. The people who most need the benefit are not able to afford or access quality childcare leading to broader social and economic impacts on the community. As part of the PDIA in Action course, students at HKS and HGSE - Harman Bhullar, Sasinat Chindapol, Crystal Collier, Doreen King, Jingli Yan, spent 7 weeks working with Kevin Schilling, a Burien City Council member and alumnus of the Implementing Public Policy Executive Program, to better understand this problem and to help identify ideas and entry points.
