Time: 1 – 2pm EST
Join the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) and diversitydatakids.org for a webinar discussing racial, ethnic, and native disparities in Head Start and child care access at the state and neighborhood levels. Featuring original analyses from CLASP and diversitydatakids.org, the webinar will highlight key data and provide a range of policy recommendations to ensure equitable access to federal early childhood programs. High-quality child care and early education can build a strong foundation for young children’s healthy development; however, many low-income children, cannot access to early childhood opportunities. While these gaps in access to child care and early education are widely recognized, less is understood the role of race and ethnicity. This webinar will present CLASP’s analysis of Head Start, Early Head Start (EHS), and the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) administrative data, as well as a diversitydatakids.org neighborhood-level analysis of Head Start, showing how access differs based on race, ethnicity, and nativity. Presenters will include: -Stephanie Schmit, Senior Policy Analyst, CLASP -Dr. Dolores Acevedo-Garcia, Project Director, and Erin Hardy, Research Director, diversitydatakids.org -Additional speakers to be announced.
