Kindergarten… is actually a major driver of crime, at least according to data collected by New Hampshire state legislator Bob Kingsbury[, who claims] that communities in his state that have kindergarten programs have up to 400% more crime.

The vandal tagging wall on wall
With spray cans says, “It ain’t
My fault. Not me. My problems all
Began with fingerpaint.”
The thief, too, calls himself the pawn
Of kindergarten, swearing,
“You ought to blame my stealing on
The folks who taught me sharing.”
That early schooling leads to grief
The flasher knows as well.
His explanation’s clear and brief.
