Working without support: Texas early childhood educators lack access to benefits
In the second brief, we explore access to the type of benefits that contribute to high-quality, nurturing care for children by supporting the wellbeing and quality of life of the child care workforce. We found that fewer than 1 in 3 early childhood educators in Texas have health insurance through their employer, only half of workers have paid sick leave, and fewer than one third have retirement accounts. For educators in home-based programs, the numbers are even lower. (author abstract)
