Early child care data systems


The summaries of the current state of early childhood education (ECE) in the previous chapters revealed a number of significant gaps in data. If they were available, these data could be used to make effective and efficient policy decisions. In this chapter, we consider the kind of data that might be collected, where California stands with regard to each kind of data, suggestions for a statewide system, and the challenges the state faces in developing a better data system.
