Preschoolers get expelled at three times the rate of students in elementary, middle and high schools. But when teachers get regular help from mental-health coaches, they expel at half the rate of those who don't. We'll also dig into the reasons why preschool boys are expelled more than girls and learn about a local program aimed to keep children in school. Next, there are a number of different invaders in the Great Lakes, we'll discuss what this means for the water quality in Lake Erie. Plus, we'll talk about the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, just one day before the Opening Ceremony.
