About the Early Educator Investment Collaborative
The Early Educator Investment Collaborative is a group of funders who have come together with the goal of helping all early educators achieve their full potential as professionals in order to prepare all children for success in school and life. The Collaborative advances the highest standards of educator quality—and makes them possible through equitable access to professional development and compensation that reflects the transformational value of early childhood educators. We bring together the early childhood field, policymakers and higher education to think big, establish the ideal and align resources to elevate all who are critical to helping young children reach their full potential. www.earlyedcollaborative.com
About the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
The founding mission of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is to advance the quality of teaching and learning by: maintaining high and rigorous standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do; providing a national voluntary system certifying teachers who meet these standards, and advocating related education reforms to integrate National Board Certification in American education and to capitalize on the expertise of National Board Certified Teachers. Recognized as the “gold standard” in teacher certification, the National Board believes higher standards for teachers means better learning for students.
