The teacher shortage in early childhood programs, including Head Start, has become a national conversation. Head Start California is working with EveryChild California to get current, on-the-ground information regarding the scope of the crisis. Collecting this data now is important, as we prepare for congressional visits in mid-September. We want to give our federal legislators a real-time understanding of the scope of the problem – both the challenge it creates for programs and its impact on parents and children. This survey has only six questions and should not take long to complete.
Advocacy is a core part of HSC’s mission. This is an opportunity to make sure that Members of Congress and the Legislature understand the scope of the challenge we are facing – we can’t tell them what we don’t know!
The survey will be open until September 10. Please take time today to complete the survey and add your voice to the story.
