“We must recognize how often the field of early childhood education has considered issues of child readiness, family, classroom environments, and quality measures through white perspectives. When voices of color are excluded from research and data collection, both in terms of study participants and research collaborations, the policies that are informed by that research are not only unhelpful to those children, but they also can actively work against them and create more inequity.”
