Thousands of preschoolers expelled due to lack of resources
Dec. 5, 2017
A recent study found that young children are being expelled from preschools and other childcare services at three times the rate of K-12 students throughout the country.
In 2016, more than 65,000 preschool-age children in the US were expelled. Dr. Walter Gilliam, a child development expert at Yale University, says that while the institution’s reasoning for the expulsion is commonly due to behavior, the real reason is lack of resources.
