The North Carolina Association of County Directors of Social Services (NCACDSS) submitted their proposal as recommendations to the Joint Legislative Task Force on the Consolidation of Early Childhood Education and Care. The General Assembly has mandated that the Task Force develop a plan for a highly coordinated and efficient system of early childhood education and care. The NCACDSS proposal does not uphold to several principles mandated by the legislation, including:
- Ensuring high quality programs.
- Ensuring core functions remain intact.
- Maintaining the strengths and effectiveness of each program.
