CSCCE conducts research and policy analysis about early childhood teacher preparation and professional development systems and offers policy recommendations about resources that support successful attainment of higher education, particularly among students who are working parents, members of minority groups, low-income, and/or first-generation college students. Our analyses encompass higher education systems, faculty characteristics and professional development needs, and access to leadership preparation. For projects related to Teacher Preparation & Development, see Higher Education Inventory. See also Teacher Work Environments, for projects related to the ongoing professional learning of early educators.
Conducting research and proposing policy solutions aimed at improving how our nation prepares, supports, and rewards the early care and education workforce since 1999.
