New Draft! Decision Cycles 7+8
Help advance the profession
What resources, infrastructure, and accountability structures needed across states and systems need to be in place to support a prepared, diverse, well-compensated early childhood education profession?
Where we are now: A fragmented, isolated, and under-resourced system that does not support the effectiveness of early childhood educators.
Where we are going: A unified, coherent, accountable, and well-resourced system that supports the effectiveness of early childhood educators.
Join us! Three things you can do:
Step 1 - Read the draft in English or en Español
Step 2 - Share the draft with others.
We need as many voices as possible to inform the Task Force recommendations. If you are interested in the Power to the Profession Engagement Toolkit to help you host a conversation with your colleagues, please click here for more information.
Step 3 - Tell us what you think. Send your thoughts directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for opportunities to learn more and engage in the coming weeks, including through webinars, focus groups, and presentations from NAEYC and partners on the Task Force and beyond. Sign up for updates.
