Executive summary 2013: From aspiration to attainment: Practices that support educational success: Los Angeles Universal Preschool's Child Development Workforce Initiative
Whitebook, Marcy, 2013
Berkeley: University of California, Berkeley, Center for the Study of Child Care Employment.

Los Angeles Universal Preschool (LAUP) Child Development Workforce Initiative (CDWFI) project, funded by First 5 LA, seeks to create a pipeline of degreed early childhood education (ECE) practitioners by providing services aimed at fostering academic success among child development and ECE students enrolled in associate (A.A.) degree programs. Across the CDWFI projects, located in seven community colleges in Los Angeles County, support services intended to promote A.A. degree completion and/or transfer to a Bachelor's (B.A.) degree program include enhanced advisement (e.g., for developing an educational plan), academic assistance (e.g., tutoring), financial assistance (e.g., scholarships and stipends), mentoring, career counseling, and networking opportunities. In order to direct resources toward effective services, it is important to understand which supports are most helpful to various groups of students. This study, conducted by the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment (CSCCE) at the University of California, Berkeley, seeks to understand what distinguishes students who are successful at earning degrees or transferring to four-year institutions from those who are stalled in their progress or who dis-enroll from school. The study also explores the perceived effectiveness of supports that different student groups have accessed through their CDWFI projects and community colleges. (author abstract)
