Do Early Educators Need College Degrees? (with Stephanie Curenton‪)‬ No One is Coming to Save Us

    • Kids & Family

Gloria kicks off the show by unpacking the numerous abortion rights and child care wins coming out of the midterm elections. Then, she chats with Stephanie Curenton, associate professor at Boston University and the director of their Center for the Ecology of Early Childhood Development. Stephanie talks about her research on the social, cognitive, and language development of low-income and minority children and the work she’s doing to create an anti-bias, anti-racist curriculum rubric for early education centers. Plus, Gloria and Stephanie get into whether or not they think early childhood educators should be required to get an advanced degree.
