Sanders, Kay; Downer, Jason T.
National Center for Research on Early Childhood Education
Given the increasing ethnic and language diversity within the United States, this study examined practices that acknowledge and promote diversity in pre-Kindergarten classrooms. Findings indicate that acceptance of diversity is a component of positive environments for young children, particularly in classrooms with high poverty levels where there is ethnic and linguistic diversity. [This research brief is based on the following published study: Sanders, K. & Downer, J. T. (2012). Predicting acceptance of diversity in pre-Kindergarten classrooms.
