Reducing Teacher Turnover in Early Childhood Education Settings: Lessons from Research Policy Partnerships in Louisiana and Virginia
Daphna Bassok is an associate professor of education and public policy at the University of Virginia and associate director of EdPolicyWorks, a joint collaboration between the School of Education and Human Development and the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. Her research addresses early childhood education policy, with a focus on efforts to improve early childhood systems at scale. She is particularly interested in policies aimed at supporting the early childhood workforce.
Currently, she is leading the multi-year evaluation of Virginia's Federal Preschool Development Grant Birth-5 initiative which aims to expand access to stable, affordable, and quality early education for Virginia's families and children, particularly those who are most vulnerable. As part of that evaluation, her team is conducting the first randomized controlled trial measuring the impacts of financial supports for early educators on reducing turnover.
Bassok holds a Ph.D. in the economics of education, an M.A. in economics, and an M.A. in policy analysis and evaluation, all from Stanford University.
