Two-thirds of counties in Indiana do not have enough child care, according to a new report.

The Statehouse File cites the report from Early Learning Indiana, which says facilities in those counties can only offer care to fewer than half of the children who need it.

Fountain County has 751 children who might need care with a maximum capacity of 187.

Indiana is also ranked 18 out of the 50 states for child care expenses.

    Step away from the legislative pen and more of our tax dollars. We already spend way too much on education for much too little result.
