Reducing Suspension and Expulsion Practices in Early Childhood Settings
Believe it or not, recent data show that suspensions and expulsions happen regularly in early childhood settings. Such practices are very concerning, especially given the stark racial and gender disparities that exist in who is suspended or expelled.
To address this issue, the Administration for Children and Families has hosted a webinar series featuring key experts who have worked on different aspects of suspension and expulsion, including policy, research and data, and prevention/intervention. A series of resource sheets is also available to connect different stakeholder groups (states, early childhood programs, families and caregivers, community partners, and more) with relevant resources.
