Early childhood workforce studies


This resource was prepared for a Race to the Top - Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) State in response to a request for information about States that have conducted workforce studies. States have conducted these studies in order to better understand the make-up and credentials of the workforce, as well as the environmental conditions, such as benefits, compensation and turnover rates among the early learning workforce. Information and data from these studies will help States with policy discussions, enable responsible decision making, and support work at the systems level that will develop a stronger workforce and ultimately higher quality early education for young children. This response includes information about the recent Workforce studies in six States and one locality. It includes a description of each study and information about who conducted the study and how the State intends to use the study. This resource also includes information about conducting workforce studies, Federal resources related to the early care and education workforce, and about a national organization that addresses workforce issues.
