Benefits and Consequences of Racial Segregation in Early Childhood
Hosted by Early Childhood Investigations and Equity Research Action Coalition
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.) 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 the racial composition is associated with quality and children’s outcomes. Speakers will discuss early care and education processes that promote and inhibit opportunities to learn and ways to ensure anti-bias, anti-racist, and culturally responsive practices.
