This blog series, “Stronger Teaching and Caregiving for California’s Youngest,” examines teaching and caregiving in California through a broad lens. Written by policy analysts from New America and journalists from HiredPen, we explore policy and practice challenges and solutions to improving teaching and caregiving in the state. Topics in this ongoing series include budget analysis, policies for dual-language learners, and partnerships to improve training and professional development for all of the adults who work with young children in California’s communities. We examine how communities are working to provide support to informal care providers, look up close at how some districts in the state are providing unique training for principals to give them a deeper understanding of early child development. And much more.
