Two years ago, Penn State announced plans to outsource child care at its Bennett Family Center. Parents protested. That led Penn State to launch a task force on child care issues. Now, based on task force recommendations, the university has made a turnaround, bringing management of a different, previously outsourced child care center, in house. WPSU discussed the about-face with Holley Benjamin. Benjamin is the new director of Early Child Care Programs and Services at Penn State; the position itself was created on recommendation of the child care task force.
