543. Saying No to Expulsion and Suspension and Yes to Meaningful Supports for Children and Families

Date: Wednesday June 28, 2017
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Metropolitan
Speakers: Fannie Glover
Pam Hollingsworth

Recent data indicate that expulsions and suspensions regularly occur in early childhood education settings, often because of challenging behaviors such as aggression, tantrums and noncompliance.  In addition, stark racial disparities exist in these overused practices, with young children of color being suspended and expelled at much higher rates than other children.  Three state and local leaders will lead an interactive discussion about building awareness, addressing equity, creating effective strategies, and the challenges and successes of building community coalitions to address this issue.
