Power to the Profession: Revised Decision Cycles 345+6

An update from NAEYC:

In conjunction with their turn to Decision Cycle 7 and 8, NAEYC's Power to the Profession National Task Force is proud to share a revised DC345+6. This document, which outlines recommendations related to differentiated preparation, pathways, specializations, and compensation, is the result of extensive field engagement, conducted through surveys, focus groups, interviews, and conference sessions that together engaged thousands of early childhood educators across states and settings, from diverse racial, linguistic, geographic, and cultural communities. This draft reflects feedback from the field based on two rounds of public comment and is not open for additional feedback at this time. Please direct your expertise towards reviewing and responding to Decision Cycle 7 and 8.
