NIEER pre-K data snapshot: State pre-K policies: Salary parity varies with teacher qualifications and setting

An all too common complaint in the early childhood field is that low salaries for preschool teachers and lack of pay parity with K-12 teachers in the public schools creates serious problems. These include low morale and difficulty recruiting and retaining strong preschool teachers. State policies can contribute to or resolve these problems in state-funded pre-K programs. This report sets out basic information about policies for teacher qualifications and pay parity using data from the 2018 State of Preschool survey. (author abstract)
