Closing the Leadership Gap: 2017 Status Report on Early Childhood Program Leadership in the United States

This resource is a clearinghouse of data on supports for early childhood program leaders in state-by-state profiles, with a national overview. School-age leaders can learn what their state mandates for leadership qualifications as required by licensing and QRIS. They can also learn about higher education opportunities, salaries, and other key supports. Each state receives a score based on policies the state has to support leaders, including early childhood and family child care leaders.
