Summary of research on the dimensions of contributing to expulsion and suspension in early childhood settings


As States and Territories consider strategies to prevent and ultimately eliminate expulsion and suspension in the early years, why early learning programs suspend or expel young children needs to be explored. The reasons can be considered as four dimensions of the problem: 1) the structure of quality with policies that increase the likelihood of expulsion and suspension; 2) the absence of deep understanding of child development, 3) racial disparities in discipline, and 4) young children who need more and different support than can be provided by an educator or an early learning setting alone.
