No longer welcome, the epidemic of expulsion from early childhood education, Katherine M. Zinsser

For over 15 years, researchers have described a crisis in our nations' early learning classrooms. Hundreds of children are expelled from childcare and preschool every day; a rate nearly three times that of kindergarten-12th grade students. While policymakers have taken steps to mitigate this crisis, disparities in who is expelled persist. Boys and Black children are routinely over-represented among those pushed out of the exact environments that are supposed to help prepare them for school. Drawing on her research and interviews with teachers, program administrators, parents, and policymakers, Dr. Katherine Zinsser presents the reader with a rich description of the myriad of factors contributing to the expulsion crisis
