A Better Start: Why Classroom Diversity Matters in Early Education The results of this study show racial/ethnic and economic disparities in preschool enrollment and in the quality of preschool that children experience.

The result is a segregated system in which low-income and minority children often attend low-quality and non-diverse early-childhood programs. The authors discuss researching findings on why the socioeconomic and racial/ethnic composition of early childhood classrooms is important and provide a number of suggestions for steps that can be taken to increase diversity.
