(New York Daily News) They’re just out of preschool, but that doesn’t stop some city schools from bringing down the hammer.

Nine city elementary schools doled out at least 10 suspensions to 4- and 5-year-olds last school year, data released Friday shows.

Among them was Public School 189 in Manhattan, which handed out a stunning 19 suspensions to 4-year-olds.

“That is so unfair for those kids,” said Josephine Aspha, mother of PS 189 second-grader, noting she wished the school had a proper way of intervening to correct kids’ behavior.
