Releasing the Voice of Early Education Directors: Degree Requirements
Martin, Kristi Koenig
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
The discovery of "windows of opportunity" regarding learning as the brain develops during the preschool years reinforces the important role early education teachers play in the lives of children. As a result, the credentials of those who work with young children have come under investigation as it relates to the provision of quality early education. The purpose of this qualitative study is to look at the imposed challenges facing early educators regarding degree requirements via phenomenological methodology in an effort to hear the voice of early educators on the subject. This study is needed to investigate the gap between research and practice regarding the practicality of implementing credentialing requirements of early educators. Directors must be allowed to share their experiences and voice their opinion on the subject to provide a dimensional look at early education credential requirements.
