167. Assessing What Teachers Need to Help Children Succeed

Date: Wednesday July 15, 2015
Time: 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM
Location: Baltimore 1
Speakers: Lea Austin and Marcy Whitebook, Center for the Study of Child Care Employment
George Philipp, WestEd
Detail:

Just as children's environments can support or impede their learning, work environments promote or hinder teachers' practice and development. However, persistent features of early childhood jobs - low wages, the absence of a rational wage structure, the low value accorded to educational attainment, and inadequate professional supports - undermine efforts to improve quality for all children. Join us for a conversation about how we can include features of early care and education workplace environments - what teachers need in addition to training and education - that can no longer be overlooked.
