"Let the Research Show" digs into the research on how an early educator’s preparation affects their effectiveness in the classroom — and ultimately finds that there are no clear answers about what high-quality teacher preparation looks like. This is particularly alarming because more and more states and localities are requiring preschool teachers to earn degrees. While some states are providing the resources and support to do so, completing a degree still carries a substantial financial and time cost, particularly for current early educators. If public policies demand that early educators earn degrees, it’s crucial to ensure that this preparation actually helps them improve their practice — and right now, the research can’t guarantee that.
