Preschool Expulsions and Suspensions, and Why We Should Care

Dr. Walter S. Gilliam, Yale University

Children of color, particularly boys, have the greatest risk of losing their early care and education placement due to expulsions and suspensions. This is especially true for black boys. Black children and families are the least likely to gain access to high-quality care and education that will help them succeed. Factors like community stressors and poorly resourced programs may contribute to these disparities. Yet, implicit biases based on race and gender may also contribute. This webinar explores these disparities in access and how we can address them.
