Get Social

Helping early childhood educators get their degrees is more important than ever. Local and state governments have begun mandating universal preschool while also increasing standards for early childhood educators. The PATH Program at SF State (Promoting Achievement Through Higher Education) removes barriers facing people entering the field. The program also gives students on-the-job training by putting students in actual classrooms. For the past few years, PATH has been increasing graduation rates for early education students at SF State. Last spring, every graduate had completed their work in either four years or, for transfers, in two years. And many of the graduates were non-traditional students — about one-third were working mothers, most were in their 30s and most came from lower-income communities. Nice work! #SFSU #SFState #ECE #EarlyChildhood #first5california #earlychildhoodeducation
