Every day, 250 children are suspended from school. Many are children of color, deprived of opportunities to experience learning at the same rate and quality as white children. Many families don’t feel heard or respected in their child’s schools.

Don’t Look Away: Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms leads early childhood professionals to explore and address issues of bias, equity, low expectations, and family engagement to ensure culturally responsive experiences. Importantly, this book will challenge you to consider your perceptions and thought processes:

  • Identify your own unconscious biases—we all have them!
  • Recognize and minimize bias in the classroom, school, and community
  • Connect with children and their families
  • Help close the opportunity gap for children from marginalized communities

  • This book offers strategies, tools, and information to help you create a culturally responsive and equitable learning environment.
