Start with Equity: 14 Priorities to Dismantle Systemic Racism in Early Care and Education

This brief report from the Children’s Equity Project outlines a policy agenda with 14 critical priorities for federal and state policymakers to advance equity in early care and education (ECE) systems. Inequities within our society often begin before birth and follow children into the ECE system, and this impacts their access, experiences, and outcomes during and after early learning. This resource gives readers specific, actionable recommendations they can implement in the short term and within the confines of current ECE systems to achieve more equitable systems for the future.
