In “Preparing a Profession: Perspectives of Higher Education Leaders of the Future of the Early Childhood Education Workforce,” which was supported by the W. Clement & Jessie V. Stone Foundation, NAEYC surveyed close to 30 higher education leaders—in IHEs and in national higher education organizations—to understand their perspectives about the current state of the ECE field and their institutions’ role in strengthening the profession. The report highlights both the opportunities for ECE higher education programs to gain stature as well as the deep structural barriers that prevent current and prospective students from fully accessing early childhood education degree programs.
