National Museum of Natural History – Race Exhibt
Racial disparity runs through every major system impacting
children’s life chances: limited access to health care; lack
of early Head Start and quality preschool experiences; children
waiting in foster care for permanent families; and failing
schools with harsh discipline policies that suspend, expel and
push more children into juvenile detention and adult prison.
We must identify key decision points where disparate treatment
of poor children of color can and must be systematically
addressed and monitored.
