Arkansas’ Implementation of Suspension and Expulsion Reduction Policies (ARISE)

NCCP is partnering with SRI and child care leadership in Arkansas to conduct a four-year Child Care Policy Research Partnership study (2018-2022). This project will examine factors that support or hinder the effective implementation of Arkansas’ innovative policies to promote children’s social-emotional development and reduce expulsion in child care programs. Methods include analyses of administrative data from multiple sources, state-wide surveys of child care program directors and providers, and regional case-studies of policy implementation in the state’s child care system. Results will be used to identify options for strengthening policies and practices in Arkansas and other states. 

Funded by Office of Planning Research and Evaluation (OPRE), the Administration for Children and Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
