Why can't Way Above Average Child get into pre-School???

Anonymous writes:
Good Morning, I am not sure if the Adair County Early Childhood Council has anything to do with pre school. However, we took our 3 year old to a Dial 4 test screening, to see if he was eligible for pre school. (NOT JUDGED ON OUR INCOME BY THE WAY, JUST HIS RESULTS) The results were way above average, which led to the denial of him attending school 2 days a week. I for one do not understand why/how a child can score above average and be denied access to School. I believe with this case, they would ACCEPT the child in all hopes to continue his above average skills throughout his school years. I may be completely wrong in my way of thinking, but doesn't the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND refer to above average children as well?! Thank you, Sincerely, Concerned Mom -Anonymous
