Increasing qualifications, centering equity: Experiences and advice from early childhood educators of color


The NAEYC and Education Trust collaborated to research how educators of color are impacted by new policies that increase education requirements for the early childhood workforce. Focus groups of Latino and black early childhood educators in New Jersey, North Carolina, and Wisconsin were questioned about how the policies have affected their career paths, the accessibility of higher education, the value of additional professional development, and the compensation concerns associated with the requirements. Policy recommendations are presented.
