Caitlin McLean

Caitlin’s work at CSCCE focuses on the Early Childhood Workforce Index, which examines early childhood workforce policies and the economic status of the workforce across all 50 states and the District of Columbia in order to assess progress toward improving early childhood jobs. Her expertise in public policy and passion for the promotion of gender equality led Caitlin from Glasgow Caledonian University, where she was an Ailsa McKay Postdoctoral Fellow, to CSCCE in 2015. Prior to joining CSCCE, Caitlin’s research focused on comparative early care and education policy, with a special emphasis on the U.S. and U.K., as well as additional research on ECE in other European countries. Caitlin holds a Ph.D. in Social Policy from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
