Why ECE Policy Matters

We need to broaden economic arguments to embrace moral and ethical ones. Both are needed . . . and they are not mutually exclusive. In fact, increased attention to economic inequality has brought us full circle to the moral and ethical arguments of fairness, equality of education opportunity, and social justice in creating a good society.

Reducing Expulsion and Suspension Rates Among NY's Children of Color

Fannie Glover, a fellow of B.U.I.L.D.’s Equity Leaders Action Network, and Barry Walston, NYS representative for the National Black Child Development Institute, are spearheading a project aimed at eliminating and/or reducing expulsion and suspension rates among children of color during the first five years.
