Raising the bar for early childhood education

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Cannon, Jill S.; Meyers, Sophie; Kaufman, Julia H.;
Date Issued: 2019
Publisher(s): RAND Corporation
Description: This report focuses on early childhood education (ECE). It specifically examines the implementation of key state actions-described in Kaufman et al. (2018)- intended to support and improve ECE and what implementation challenges have emerged. Findings suggest broad awareness and support of the state's new requirements intended to increase quality and accountability for publicly funded providers of ECE, as well as strong communication between the state and ECE stakeholders. However, our interviews and surveys with ECE stakeholders revealed some implementation challenges, including challenges particularly affecting Type III ECE centers, which are the centers that serve low-income children receiving public subsidies.
