This white paper makes the case for why states should build longitudinal data systems for early care and education, describes the ten fundamentals of a coordinated system with state examples, and provides guidance on how to ensure appropriate access to data, which includes building the capacity for stakeholders to use the data for continuous improvement.
We collaborate with many organizations, associations, and government entities as we work to improve how our nation prepares, supports, and rewards the early care and education workforce.
The resources on this page include media articles on the early care and education workforce, links to speeches, lectures and roundtable discussions on workforce issues, relevant research and projects of other groups, and more.
