Lock 5 Kindergarten and Crime Does Kindergarten Lead to Crime? Yes, according to research conducted by New Hampshire state legislature Bob Kingsbury “Kingsbury (R-Laconia), 86, recently claimed that analyses he’s been carrying out since 1996 show that communities in his state that have kindergarten programs have up to 400% more crime than localities whose classrooms are free of finger-painting 5-year-olds. Pointing to his hometown of Laconia, the largest of 10 communities in Belknap County, the legislator noted that it has the only kindergarten program in the county and the most crime, including most or all of the county’s rapes, robberies, assaults and murders.” Szalavitz, M. “ Does Kindergarten Lead to Crime?
