Inexperienced teachers' difficulties with unruly students prompt state-financed preschools to expel about 5,000 students a year, a rate more than three times higher than that of most K-12 public schools.

The findings, released Monday, put the first solid numbers on what observers say is a worsening behavior problem among very young students. The findings also suggest that while the national debate over pre-kindergarten focuses on how to get more low-income kids into the programs, "there appears to be a back door through which some children - the ones who stand the most to gain from these programs - are sometimes pushed," says Walter Gilliam of Yale's Child Study Center and the author of the report. "These 3- and 4-year olds are barely out of diapers."

A federal judge whose family was murdered is urging the Senate to condemn harsh remarks about the judiciary.

U-S District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow (LEF'-koh) told the Senate Judiciary Committee the safety of judges around the country is at stake. She says, "Fostering disrespect for judges can only encourage those who are on the edge, or the fringe, to exact revenge on a judge who ruled against them."

Five hundred employees at Franklin County Children Services were poised to go on strike Tuesday night after being unable to reach a new contract with the county.

Union members were set to begin striking at 7 a.m. Wednesday at all six locations where FCCS has offices. The social service agency wants the employees to start paying a portion of health care premiums. But the workers argue that they have already sacrificed higher wages in exchange for better benefits.

The Government is launching a nationwide programme to help separating parents prevent stress and trauma to their children.

The initiative comes as part of the Budget and will cost $6.2 million over the next four years. The programmes will be run through the Family Court. Justice Minister Phil Goff says it is based on similar successful programmes in the United States and Britain, along with a pilot called Children in the Middle run by the Auckland Family Courts Association last year.

Thousands of children are suffering abuse, neglect and problems at school as a result of their parents' ill health, a study has shown.

University of Edinburgh researchers studied about 9,000 calls made to ChildLine Scotland over four years. They found youngsters struggling to cope with cancer, depression and drug and alcohol abuse within their family. The study revealed that children found it difficult to get help and were often subjected to violence.

A bitter standoff between the parents of a 12-year-old and Texas social workers and doctors over radiation treatment ended on Friday on a somber note with a medical report that the girl's Hodgkin's disease, which had seemed in remission, had reappeared.

The parents, Michele and Edward Wernecke, lost custody of their daughter Katie a week ago, after opposing radiation therapy as unnecessary. When the new test results were announced at a hearing in juvenile court, the parents quickly complied and agreed through their lawyers to let doctors set the course of treatment, which could resume in days.
