Dr. Valora Washington made a big splash on the national stage recently with the publication of her blog on the New America website.

Titled Elephants in the Room: Workforce Respect and Equity, the blog is part of a New America blog series that attempts “to delve into the complexities, frictions, and mistrust embedded in the interplay among (1) preparation and education, (2) compensation and status, and (3) diversity and inclusivity.”

Stacie G. Goffin, one of Dr. Washington’s book co-authors, is the honcho of the series. According to the intro of the blog, Washington’s piece “suggests that discussions and decisions regarding professionalizing ECE should be accompanied by a set of guiding principles and identifies two as priorities — respect for the ECE workforce and an intentional focus on equity. She also contends that if we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll recognize these two concepts as being ‘elephants in the room.’ ”
