Reasoned solutions in the nation’s interest


Education is a core policy area of work for CED, and our portfolio addresses the entire learning continuum–early childhood, K-12, and postsecondary education. CED’s longtime efforts focus on increasing the quality of, and access to, high-quality early education through public and private initiatives; examining the impact of the child care industry across states; improving the early childhood education workforce; providing recommendations on student transitions to the workplace; boosting postsecondary institution performance; increasing teacher quality; and advancing apprenticeship as a training strategy. CED also supports work in states across the country by sharing evidence-based policies and practices to increase access and quality of early care and education, as well as to improve workforce preparation and development ecosystems.
