Centering Black families: Equitable discipline through improved data policies in child care: Executive summary


This brief will outline the history of inequitable disciplinary practices in child care and early education—and in the context of American society more generally. In addition, the brief will examine how equitable data practices can uncover important, program-level information that tells the story of current realities and can center racial equity in data planning and collection. Finally, this brief will explore current child care systems such as the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) and Head Start, which are microcosms of the larger privatized system. Equitable data practices are a key first step when examining all these issues and strengthening early care and education experiences. (author abstract)
