The McCormick Cneter for Early Childhood Leadership recently conducted a study to explore the role of the director as an advocate for the early childhood workforce. The student sought to determine the workforce issues that directors believe to be the most important, their self-perceptions related to advocacy, and the specific actions they have taken related to workforce issues. Additionally, the study sought to illuminate the characteristics of the most engaged advocates.
