Key takeaways from On the Table MKE discussions

Early Childhood Education

  • Re-evaluate how early childhood education is funded and assign proper value to all aspects of the sector so pricing structures, educator pay and respect for the profession all reflect the critical importance of the field
  • Invest in people by providing children with the foundations they need to be successful in life and understand that results are long-term, not immediate
  • View early childhood education through an equity lens so Black, Brown and underrepresented people serving in and served by the sector are represented, and lift up the role of men in the child development and early education space
