Early Childhood Issue Brief – Strong Foundations: Promoting Diverse and Inclusive Preschool Settings
June 22, 2022
In the nearly 70 years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark anti-segregation ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education, America’s K-12 and higher education settings have become more richly diverse.

With support from Trust for Learning, The Hunt Institute has partnered with The Education Trust, The Century Foundation and Educational Alliance’s Manny Cantor Center to create a new issue brief, Strong Foundations: Promoting Diverse and Inclusive Preschool Settings. The report, which explores and defines diversity across multiple dimensions, points to the benefits of diversity and inclusion for all children and offers policy considerations for leaders seeking to promote the creation of such classrooms.
