Understanding equitable access to public Montessori pre-K: A case study of Montessori recruitment and enrollment practices
Ensuring equitable access to high-quality early education for families from all racial, ethnic, and income backgrounds is a critical component for addressing systemic racism and inequality within the public education system. This study examined one piece of this issue by investigating access to public Montessori pre-K, as well as barriers that may hinder equitable access. Barriers to accessing high-quality educational opportunities often disproportionally affect Black and Latine families and families experiencing poverty, and these barriers may contribute to what researchers call the “opportunity gap.” (author abstract)
