Equitable Interactions in Early Childhood Education

Equitable education means that all children have a fair and just opportunity to thrive. Recent events have highlighted the opportunity gap in early childhood education and just how much work we have left to do. 

What we know is that currently:

  • Black children account for just 18% of preschool enrollment but almost half (48%) of the children suspended more than once.
  • Compared with young white children—of whom 7 percent experience multiple adversities (ACES)—the percentage of Black children experiencing multiple adversities is approximately twice as high.
  • 1 in 5 young children live in a family that has struggled to cover basics such as food or housing.
  • 79% of children from low-income families are not reading proficiently by 3rd grade.
  • 82% of public school teachers are white, but research shows that Black students who have just one Black teacher by third grade are 13 percent more likely to enroll in college.  

To promote equity in early childhood education, we need to create conditions where all children, especially historically marginalized children, get what they need to succeed. 

Join us for the webinar, Equitable Interactions in Early Childhood Education, to learn about practical, research-based strategies to promote equitable teaching so that every child can experience life-changing teaching interactions.
