CHILDPOL 325S: Equity in Early Childhood Programs and Policies

Spring 2024

Instructor: Charla Lawrence, Whitney McCoy

This course will explore contemporary theories and empirical research that address issues of equity and early childhood development from birth to age eight. Students will examine factors related to individuals and systems (e.g., child care, public health, housing, workforce, social services) that impact early childhood development. Students will critically consider the developmental science that has informed early childhood policies and programs; the social, political and economic forces that shape the study of young children and contributed to developmental trajectories that benefit some children while disadvantaging others; the changing roles of families; and the implications of these policies.
