Chalkbeat Chicago Details LAS Psychologist Kate Zinsser’s Co-Authored Report that Finds Fewer Early Childhood Education Expulsions Following 2018’s Illinois Law Change

Chalkbeat Chicago features an article about a report co-authored by Kate Zinsser, UIC associate professor of psychology and principal investigator at the Social-Emotional Teaching and Learning Lab, that finds fewer early childhood education expulsions following an Illinois law that went into effect in January 2018, but boys, Black children, and children with diagnosed disabilities or individualized learning plans are slightly over-represented among those excluded. Zinsser discusses her team’s findings, an earlier related study, and areas for improvement.
