Erasing Barriers for Our Students

FamilyOur students need help paying for childcare. 

Striking a balance between school, work and family is an arduous and ongoing task for most of our community college students at Mountain View College.

Finding affordable childcare is a challenge for our students who are parents.

Studies have shown that individuals who have earned a higher education degree have increased earning potentials, thereby affording them expanded opportunities to improve their children’s chances of future success.

The U.S. Census Bureau found that a parent’s educational attainment is a significant predictor of the parent’s educational expectations for his or her children, which can greatly impact a child’s educational attainment.

BOTTOM LINE:

A childcare subsidy for low-income students would greatly help ensure the childcare barrier is broken, and our students are more likely to earn their degrees or certificates at Mountain View College.
