GAO’s Office releases study on Early Care and Education Workforce

The federal Government Accountability Office released a report yesterday on steps to enhance early care and education worker quality. The GAO examined (1) what is known about the composition, education, and income of the ECCE workforce and how these characteristics relate to quality, and (2) what activities are the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Education, and the states financing to improve worker quality?

The report does not offer policy recommendations.
