This is truly a historic achievement, giving a voice to our community of Black child care educators, many of whom have worked tirelessly for decades to support generations of families in SF.
The purpose of a document of this nature — also known as a “white paper” — is to inform, advocate and offer recommendations in order to influence decision-making.
The paper was recently presented to the San Francisco Department of Early Childhood, Mayor London Breed’s staffers and a host of city officials. Children’s Council will strive to ensure these recommendations are at the center of early care & education conversations about policies and funding discussions in the coming months and years.
Children’s Council’s Black Early Educator Policy Council was formed as a stakeholder group with early childhood experts from across San Francisco. This twenty-two plus member council, comprised of industry experts from a variety of ECE settings, were tasked with providing insight, analysis and racial justice recommendations centered on improving student outcomes for Black children ages 0-5.
We would also like to thank the African American Early Childhood Educators association for their valuable contributions to this initiative and to the community for so many years.
This work is supported by the Dream Keeper Initiative.
