Why are so many preschoolers being suspended? [Letter]

November 15, 2013

I agree with letter writer Carol Beck that preschool suspensions merit deeper investigation ("Preschool suspensions merit deeper investigation," Nov. 14).

Perhaps The Sun needs to do that deeper investigation. No one with any sense thinks that a preschooler should be denied an education. So what is really going on? Class size? Prior efforts by the teacher? Prior efforts by the parents? Parent involvement? Adequate medical care? Alternative resources? Poor teacher training?

What are the real reasons preschoolers are being suspended and what can be done about them? I am afraid this has been presented in an emotional rather than a thoughtful way.
