Early Childhood Workforce Index 2018: Executive summary

This second edition of the biennial Early Childhood Workforce Index continues to track the status of the ECE workforce and related state policies in order to understand changes over time. We have added several new analyses and updated our policy indicators and recommendations. Highlights include: - Earnings data for preschool/child care center directors; - State wage data, presented in the context of cost of living; - The role of minimum wage legislation in increasing early educator wages; - Analyses of wage and opportunity disparities among groups of early educators based on race/ethnicity and program setting (the age of children served, funding streams); and - Revised policy indicators and a new weighted-point framework to allow for more sophisticated assessments of stalled, edging forward, and making headway.
