Delivering on the Promise of Effective Early Childhood Education for Black Children: Eliminating Exclusionary Discipline and Concentrating on Inclusion

Launched by the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) in 2017, Delivering on the Promise of Effective Early Childhood Education for Black Children is an initiative designed to dismantle the foundation of America’s preschool to prison pipeline—the rising rates of suspensions and expulsions in early childhood education (ECE). Through this initiative, NBCDI supports advocates and policymakers nationwide who fight for equal access to education for all young children by eliminating suspensions and expulsions in early childhood education and implementing positive discipline practices.
