Twitter Chat: Pay and Credentials for Early Educators


Thanks to all who participated in our Twitter chat on #PreKPay! There were several key take-aways from the chat that we need to continue to discuss:
  • We need to raise awareness that early childhood is a critical time in a child's life for brain development, and consequently change the perception of the work early educators do.
  • Educators need to be paid more for this important work.
  • Any conversations about credentials or degrees need to factor in our history of inequality in higher education, as well as questions of cultural responsiveness in our early education programs.
  • The government must invest in early education to improve both teacher pay and access to high-quality programs.

Check out an archive of the full chat below, and continue to use the hashtag #PreKPay to let us know what you think of this important issue!
