Preschool Suspension and Expulsion: What You Should Know as an ECE Provider @ Online
Dec 1 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Presenter: Susan Mrazek
Preschool age children are 3 times more likely to be suspended or expelled than children K-12. Research has shown that young Black and brown boys specifically are disproportionately represented among those excluded from educational environments. Building home-school relationships, having an awareness of implicit bias, and investing in adult-child relationship building are all protective factors against preschool suspension and expulsion. In this training, participants will learn about the different types of suspension and expulsion, how common they are in the early care and education environment, as well as what research has shown us is effective prevention.
