What does the history of advocacy for early education tell us about today? (with Eva Cox)
Jun 26th, 2020 by earlyedushow
COVID-19’s impact on the early education sector has meant that we’ve been having advocacy conversations that we didn’t expect to be having in 2020. The Government implemented free early education - for a short time. Early childhood educators were seen as frontline workers - but not supported properly. Will this be a brief moment before we get back to normal, or have things changed for good? Australia has had lots of changes to our early education system before, thanks in no small part to advocates and feminists who pushed for fairer and more equitable policies and systems. What does that history tell us about what’s happening today?
To discuss that question, Lisa and Liam are joined by one of Australia’s leading advocates for social reform - Eva Cox.
