Erin Tebben's dissertation grant proposal was recently funded by the U.S. Administration for Children and Families!

Big congratulations to Erin Tebben (PhD student) whose dissertation grant proposal titled “Interrogating Anti-Blackness in Early Childhood Expulsions: A Mixed Methods Investigation of Expulsion Prevention Referrals” has been funded by the U.S. Administration for Children and Families (ACF).


This dissertation grant will support Erin for the next 12 months as she carries out her dissertation research which aims to deepen our understanding of how structural and individual factors contribute to the disproportionate expulsion of young Black children from early childhood education programs.
