A recent article in Education Week cites the Texas Early Childhood Workforce Compensation Study to highlight the fact that early-childhood educators and caretakers in Texas receive lower pay than their peers in other states.  This study was commissioned by the Texas Early Learning Council, and the report discussing the results of surveys of child care workers across the state of Texas was released in July. Data collection and analysis for the study were conducted by Cynthia Juniper, Anjali Gupta, and Daniel Schroeder at the Ray Marshall Center in collaboration with the School of Social Work’s Child and Family Research Institute (CFRI) at the University of Texas at Austin.  Surveys captured information on child care professional demographic characteristics, work history, compensation, benefits, and retention‐related factors.
