CCCECE and EPEC Release a Paper on the
Threats Faced by Community College Child Development Departments
On February 7 the Early Childhood Professional Development and Education Collaborative (EPEC) and CCCECE jointly released a paper (see attached) outlining the threats faced by community college child development departments. The paper talks about the threat to workforce education because of the budget squeeze. It calls for the development of a new mode of funding for our departments and our lab schools. It was distributed statewide to approximately 2,000 people on a variety of email lists. The goal of the paper is to raise awareness across the state and in a variety of venues about the crisis we face.
