Data is a Key Resource in Developing Equitable Pre-K Systems

Currently, federal, state, territory, and tribal leaders lack a cohesive picture of pre-K investments due to the siloed nature of publicly funded pre-K programs and the absence of actionable data needed to improve the equity of experiences for children, families, and workforce members. In response to this growing need, the Early Childhood Data Collaborative (ECDC) at Child Trends is developing a framework to help preschool leaders collect and use data to create more equitable pre-K systems.
