Improve school discipline to keep students in school
In order to learn, students need to be in school. That’s why a growing coalition of Minnesota educators, students, and families have been pushing for a new approach to school discipline: one that focuses on addressing root causes and keeping kids in class, and out of the school-to-prison pipeline.
But, Betsy DeVos and the U.S. Department of Education might soon make this work much harder by rolling back federal guidance that has helped curb discrimination in school discipline. The Department is currently accepting public comment and needs to hear from YOU! Minnesota state leaders also need to know that, whatever happens nationally, advocates like you will keep calling on them to do the right thing right here in local schools.
Take action now! With just one click, you can urge Betsy DeVos to preserve important federal guidelines and urge our state leaders to end the school-to-prison pipeline locally.
