There are schools across the country that currently have a problem with disruptive and sometimes violent students.
It seems like every other week, a video of a violent beatdown at a school goes viral on social media.
In California, they are considering a bill that would bar schools from suspending disruptive students, because suspension is supposedly discriminatory.
The Blaze reports:
California may bar schools from suspending unruly students because doing so is allegedly discriminatory
The California Senate is considering a bill that would prohibit schools from suspending disruptive and defiant students. The rationale behind the bill is that such suspensions disproportionately affect black male students.
This ban on holding students accountable for bad behavior would apply to charter schools and public schools alike, grades 1 through 12.
What are the details?
State Sen. Nancy Skinner (D) introduced SB-274 on Feb. 1, which was referred to the Committee on Education on Thursday.
The bill would prevent students in grades 1 through 12 from being suspended for “disrupting school activities or otherwise willfully defying the valid authority of supervisors, teachers, administrators, school officials, or other school personnel engaged in the performance of their duties.”
In addition to giving a pass to disruptive and unruly students set on interrupting classes and making it difficult for other students to learn, Skinner’s bill also prohibits the suspension or expulsion of students who are “truant, tardy, or otherwise absent from school activities.”
The bill contends that “California law concerning youth, their development, and punishment for their behaviors has been evolving,” suggesting that expecting less accountability and responsibility from students has been a mark of progress.
This is such a dumb idea.
“California schools will no longer be able to suspend students in elementary and middle school for disrupting school activities or “willfully defying” the authority of teachers or administrators…”https://t.co/4I01pdCxpa
