In 2021, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa received an IHE partnership grant to build the capacity of Hawaiʻi’s ECE teacher preparation and career pathways through its Early Childhood Educator Excellence and Equity (ECE³) Project. With grant funding from The Collaborative, the ECE³ Project commissioned the RAND Corporation to conduct a landscape study of ECE workforce wages and working conditions in Hawaiʻi and identify promising strategies for improving recruitment and retention of a highly-qualified ECE workforce. The recently released report, “Early Childhood Educators in Hawaiʻi: Addressing Compensation, Working Conditions, and Professional Advancement”, analyzes existing and new data collected through interviews, focus groups, an online survey, and case studies. Read this newsletter and join the EEIC mailing list here.
