State Leads in Reducing Public Childcare and Pre-K Suspension and Expulsion

Jun 11, 2018

The federal government issued a warning to states to address the alarming number of young children being expelled or suspended from public daycares and pre-K schools. The Arkansas Department of Human Services is among the first to respond, launching a model program in 2017 called the BehaviorHelp Response System, which provides resources to distressed youngsters and their families. Many Arkansas districts also rely on a classroom method known as Conscious Discipline.
