In this paradigm-shifting webinar, you will learn about implicit racial bias and its role in behavior management practices and policies in early childhood programs. Research reveals that Black children are disproportionally suspended or expelled in their earliest school experiences. The implications of the research demonstrate that teachers’ practices, and administrative policies often set untenable conditions and lead to unnecessary disciplinary actions for children of color. for teachers and administrators.
Presented by early childhood equity experts Ebonyse Mead and Jen Neitzel, this webinar will help you understand about how to examine current classroom and program practices. Jen and Ebonyse will also provide an overview of state-level policies related to bias.
Join this webinar to learn how to examine how our own implicit biases may affect the way in which you and your colleagues manage the behavior of young children of color, particularly Black children. You will explore concrete strategies and action steps to address the role of implicit biases in current behavior management practices.
After taking part in this webinar, you will be able to:
1. Define implicit bias, including its role in the disproportionate number of young Black children who are suspended or expelled from early learning programs;
2. Describe the root causes of racial disparities in early childhood suspensions and expulsions; and
