States and cities across the country are increasingly engaged in strategies to improve compensation for early educators. Using cross-state data from the Early Childhood Workforce Index and related research on minimum wage legislation and pre-K compensation parity policies, participants will learn about compensation strategies currently being pursued, and will hear from state and local representatives about their experiences.
