It may surprise you that almost 7000 American children are suspended, or even expelled, every year from pre-schools. It turn out that black kids are three and a half times more likely to suffer than fate than white kids. Walter Gilliam is Professor of Psychology at Yale University, who turned his attention from the kids to their teachers.
