Changes in early educator wellbeing and job commitment in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic: Lessons from large-scale surveys in Jefferson and Rapides Parishes
We compared teacher emotional wellbeing, financial wellbeing and job commitment before and during COVID both overall and separately for child care and school-based pre-k sites using data from the fall 2019 and 2020 waves of the Study of Early Education in Louisiana Workforce Survey. In both years, surveys were sent to all teachers working with children ages 0-5, not yet in kindergarten working in publicly-funded child care and school-based state pre-k sites. In 2020, surveys were sent to sites that were open and providing care, either remotely or in-person. (author abstract)
