AB 2806 – Prohibiting Expulsion in Early Learning

Kidango is proud to co-sponsor AB 2806 by Assemblymember Blanca Rubio to prohibit suspension and expulsion in preschool and child care programs and strengthen early childhood mental health consultation.

AB 2806 builds equitable learning environments for all students and eliminate exclusionary practices that contribute to the preschool to prison pipeline and seriously harm student outcomes.

By supporting educators and eliminating exclusionary policies that disproportionately harm young learners of color, AB 2806 benefits the entire community by acting against implicit and explicit factors causing students to miss time from the early learning and care setting.
