Smart people are starting to unpack that Yale study showing that pre-schools expel kids at a rate 3x higher than higher grades. The result: maybe preschool itself is the problem.
Of course, the theories put forward in this NYT article seem to contradict themselves. Preschools are too rigorous, with too much regimented activity driven by academic achievement and standardized testing, says one expert. Or, says another, they're just day care centers in preschool drag, whose actual clients are parents, not kids. Or they're not supporting their own teachers.
