Understanding Links Between Work Climate and Early Care and Education Classroom Quality (childtrends.org)

Work climate is a broad term that encompasses all facets of the work environment, other than training and education, that support or detract from employees’ ability to succeed (Whitebook, McLean, Austin, & Edwards, 2018). In this brief, we use a sample of center-based child care classrooms in Georgia to examine how different aspects that affect work climate (e.g., wages, employee benefits, teacher turnover, children per teacher, and educator stress and commitment) are related to...

It's time we gave women and young children their due [edsource.org]

By Liz Simons, EdSource, December 17, 2020 California’s Master Plan for Early Learning and Care may seem at first glance like an overly forward-looking plan in this time of urgent need. But the plan is a template for a better life, not only for our youngest children, whose futures hinge on their access to quality early learning and care, but for women — working mothers and the early childhood workforce, almost all women, disproportionately women of color. Unfurled during a tidal wave of...
