ECEA Releases a Response to Orlando and Charleston
The Early Childhood Education Assembly of NCTE released a statement last week entitled:

Early Childhood Education Assembly Response to the Orlando Shootings and the Anniversary of the Mother Emmanuel Church Murders


“The Early Childhood Education Assembly (ECEA) believes that it is long past time for
schools to take a visible and vocal stand against the beliefs that breed these atrocities
as well as the more insidious cruelties that occur in our schools every day: the
psychological anguish children experience when they feel they must hide their two
moms or two dads, their sexual orientation, their explorations of gender identification,
their faith, home culture, and languages.”


This statement is a call to action, inviting educators to find ways to “teach against anti-LGBTQIA, Latin@, Muslim Bias, and Racism.” It includes several resources teachers can use in their classrooms to generate transformative practices.
