A preschool in New Jersey is facing criticism for discriminating against a toddler with Down Syndrome, according to a lawsuit filed against Chesterbrook Academy.
The New Jersey Attorney General’s office filed the suit because Chesterbrook Academy expelled a 3-year-old with Down Syndrome for not being fully potty-trained. But, other kids who also weren’t potty-trained got to stay.
The preschool is part of a national chain run by Nobel Learning Communities. They have not commented directly, but they did release a statement on Wednesday restating their dedication to diversity.
