Fits and the Tantrums: Training Early Care and Education Professionals to Afford Children Full Humanity

December 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Online,

Early intervention studies have shown that high quality early care and education programs can yield $4 to $9 returns for every $1 spent, indicating this arena is a vital public investment for long-term social welfare and economic viability. Early care and education programs, however, vary widely in quality, leaving this return on investment unfulfilled. In this presentation, Brita A. Bookser will discuss how state and local uptake of quality improvement initiatives benefit from integrating social justice and critical race frameworks…

Specifically, this research speaks to a body of knowledge evidencing that patrol police officers experience routine occupational discontent emergent from failed or poorly drafted attempts to improve police-community relationships. While these top-down institutional efforts to build trust and mutual respect between officers and the communities they serve…

Since the 1980s, Chief Executive Officers' (CEO) pay has exploded, largely in the form of equity-based incentive compensation such as stock awards and options. Using a two-tiered principal-agent model, we show that aligning managers' incentives with shareholder interests through equity-based pay can lower workers' wages. Analyzing a sample that matches firm, manager, and worker information in the U.S. economy over the period 1992-2016, we show that higher equity-based pay is associated with lower average wages across various measures of pay…
