There is growing concern across the United States about the increasing difficulty of recruiting and retaining experienced and educated workers in the field of early childhood education (ECE). Using new data covering a quarter century, Losing Ground in Early Childhood Education, a new study co-published by EPI and the Keystone Research Center, shows a substantial decline in workforce qualifications in center-based ECE and the even lower qualifications in home-based ECE. Both areas of ECE today have workforce education levels well-below those needed to improve long-term academic outcomes for children. In addition to the full-length study that examines trends on the national level, seven companion Issue Briefs explore the ECE situation in seven specific states and a supplementary set of downloadable tables makes general comparisons across 39 states. (Co-published by EPI and the Keystone Research Center.)
