Racial segregation permeates all facets of life including early care and education. (One example of structural racism in the U.S. is racial segregation in housing.) In this fascinating webinar presented by Iheoma U. Iruka, Ph.D. and Stephanie Curenton, Ph.D. will guide you to use a critical lens to examine the implications of racial segregation in early childhood especially when seeking to advance equity for Black children and other children of color. You will hear about the findings of a recent paper that examined how racial composition is associated with quality and children’s outcome. Speakers will discuss processes within the early care and education that promote and inhibit opportunities to learn, and ways to ensure anti-bias, anti-racist and culturally responsive practices. Join this webinar or watch the recording to:
- Understand the current evidence about racial composition in early childhood and quality of experiences
- Examine how structured inequities are impact current early childhood experiences
- Learn about a classroom measure that can support anti-bias, anti-racist practices
