Michigan is 16th in oversight and 24th in regulation but still scored a D overall. Seems a little messed up that we could score a D but still be in the top 25...

  • Not very well. 36th
    I've yet to see school systems/dayschools/daycares in the south as good as what we had in VA. And that's primarily why I stayed home for 7 years.

  • But now that I checked, I see our public school system ranks 8 out 10 so that is great.
    Decatur with those school systems that supposedly " rock " are a 3 out of 10. LMAO

  • NC 19th not too hot. Luckily I've never had to put my kids in daycare, but I feel for those that have no other choice.

  • NC - 4th in oversight, but 36th in regulation. It seems from the chart that our biggest problem is in the staff:child ratios, as well as having too many children in a facility.

  • And 31st for program requirements. Still not surprised....

  • CPS workers are overworked and underpaid. Not to mention that must be a brutal job, overseeing children in less than adequate conditions, parents who abuse and neglect their LOs.
