This past February, NYSPEP brought together professionals from across New York State at the NYSPEP-hosted virtual SUMMIT ON WORKFORCE QUALITY FOR PARENTING EDUCATION to discuss the elevation of parenting education. The result of this was a report recently released that focuses on the importance of those providing parenting education services, the critical need for a recognition system, and next steps to pursue.
