Early Childhood Education Leadership Development Compendium: A View of the Current Landscape
This report is the second edition that investigates how the early childhood education (ECE) field is cultivating leaders within the field. Based on survey results, it examines the role of 55 self-identified leadership development programs in supporting staff learning of leadership skills. The programs provide leadership support in three categories: (1) program administration; (2) program improvement; and (3) leadership skills. The authors challenge the ECE field to clarify who is being trained, how they are being trained, and for what purpose.
