African American and Latina teachers and aides in early education programs make less than their white counterparts, according to a new analysis from the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment at UC Berkeley. The study found that even when they have the same level of education as white early educators, African American educators still earn an average of 78 cents less per hour, which means $1,622.40 less per year for a full-time, full-year worker. Hispanic early educators are more likely than white teachers to work as assistants in center-based programs, particularly in California.
