Excellent new infographic from the Center for Study of Child Care Employment at UC Berkeley. Not only are there stark pay inequities between ECE and K-12 educators, but within the ECE workforce itself. ECE workers who care for infants and toddlers make the lowest wages of all, disproportionately affecting women of color. To increase the supply of quality early care and education opportunities, we must place a higher social value on the critical role that the ECE workforce plays in the development of our youngest citizens. These dedicated professionals should be paid fairly and equitably.
