Alliance-Funded Support of State Advocacy

New America’s Early Education Initiative is part of the Education Policy Program, which works to advance policies and elevate dialogue to support high-quality learning environments for all children birth through third grade. With support from the Alliance, New America is building on its work over the last few years that informs state efforts to advance the early care and education (ECE) profession:

1. Assembling a working group of higher education experts to identify innovations and state and federal policies that can support the advancement of early childhood educators, and disseminate findings to the field, including the Alliance network. 

2. Identifying, developing, and sharing video resources that help advocates and others communicate why educators require rigorous preparation and robust supports.

3. Disseminating takeaways from both strands of work through blog posts on EdCentral that can be cross-posted with partner organizations and shared via relevant listservs, their weekly newsletter, and social media outlets.
