“How do we raise teachers’ salaries without raising tuition?”
Friends Center for Children’s Teacher Housing Initiative is no longer our best kept secret. Recently it has received widespread media attention, which is essential if early childhood educators across Connecticut and in every corner of the United States will ever be paid fairly for their priceless contributions shaping our youngest. System change is needed to increase the salaries of early childhood educators without raising tuition rates for families. As we share the model of our free teacher housing as a salaried benefit we hope it inspires support and replication so that more early childhood educators, both locally and nationwide, receive the compensation they deserve.
