Type Policy Brief or Report
Year 2017
Level State
State(s) All States
Policy Areas Children & Families, Economic Justice, Education
While there is wide agreement across states and types of schools that K-12 teachers should obtain a bachelor's degree, no consensus exists within the early care and education workforce. This report analyzes how this lack of consensus has led to disparities in minimum qualifications across ECE settings and states, and disparities in compensation between K-12 teachers and ECE teachers.
