All 50 States Fail to Provide Adequate Resources for Early Childhood Education

 

The first comprehensive state-by-state analysis of early childhood education across the United States looked at early education employment conditions and policies and found that states are failing to provide fair compensation, professional work environments and the training required of teachers to help students succeed. There are approximately 2 million early educators who care for about 12 million children up to age 5.

The findings come at the heels of the Obama administration working to add more funding to early childhood programs. Many are concerned that those who receive a poor early childhood education will not be able to keep up with a competitive workforce, especially one that will likely be dependent on more advanced skillsets to harness the power of machine learning.
