Bold on Early Educator Compensation Learning Community 2022: Lessons from State Actions

This issue brief captures lessons learned from a learning community about early educator compensation in seven states (WA, IL, MA, NC, NM, VT, WI) sponsored by the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment. It explored how we can create sustainable strategies on compensation as the deadline for spending ARPA funds approaches. The strategies and examples include laying groundwork for compensation reform; salary scales and cost modeling; funding mechanisms to address compensation; and building capacity for data collection. A three-page executive summary called State Actions on Early Educator Compensation is also available here
