Setting the Foundation: An Introduction to the 14 Priorities for Dismantling Systemic Racism in Early Care & Education
The National Center for Preschool Development Grants Birth Through Five (PDG B–5) sponsored a three-part technical assistance series on equity in early childhood care and education across various state systems including funding, monitoring and accountability, workforce development, inclusion, discipline and guidance, and others.
Dr. Shantel Meek and Dr. Iheoma Iruka, national leading equity and early childhood experts, and their colleagues from The Children’s Equity Project (CEP), led an introductory webinar. Offered in conjunction with a small group state team workshop and office hours by facilitators from CEP, the “Equity in Early Care and Education Systems" series provided participants with an in-depth understanding of 14 concrete and measurable priorities that states can implement to advance equity in early childhood care and education systems.
