Christopher Watson
Christopher Watson, Ph.D., Co-Director of the Center for Early Education and Development (CEED), was selected to serve on the Professional Development Committee for the Minnesota Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC). The ECAC makes recommendations to the Governor and legislature, including proposed legislation on how to create a high-quality early childhood system in Minnesota in order to improve the educational outcomes of children. The goal of the council is to ensure that all children are school-ready by 2020.

The Professional Development Committee is charged with making recommendations that will establish a statewide professional development and career advancement system. These recommendations will be presented to the ECAC in October to be included in the overall strategic plan. The Professional Development Committee is charged with focusing on the pre-service system (i.e., 2 and 4 year public and private institutions of higher education) and in-service system for statewide professional development and career advancement.
