Resources for Strengthening Higher Education Quality and Articulation 

Presented by Camille Catlett

Getting Started with Articulation
This brief funded by the U.S. Office of Child Care introduces current issues on articulation supporting early childhood degree attainment for state partners and leaders. The brief provides background information on the purpose of articulation agreements and the strategies for developing sustainable articulation agreements that work to improve the abilities of the early childhood workforce.

A Perspective on Early Childhood Education and Articulation 
This paper published by Early Educator Central highlights the need for improved articulation agreements between 2-year and 4-year higher education institutions in early childhood education. The paper examines the goals, benefits, and our current system of articulation agreements.

Early Childhood Education: Taking Stock Across the States 
The Center for the Study of Child Care Employment has released a new brief, Early Childhood Higher Education: Taking Stock Across the States. The November 2015 publication is based on findings from the ECE Higher Education Inventory conducted in several states: California, Indiana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. This brief highlights the extent to which ECE teacher preparation is currently integrated across the birth-to-age-eight continuum, and variations in field-based practice opportunities for teachers of young children.
