SB 419 "may be one of the best ways to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline," Skinner said.

Okay, I think I understand the Right-wing opposition now.

I am having trouble loading the page. What are they considering a disruptive student? I dont agree with sending kids home for being loud and obnoxious in the classroom, that is rewarding their behavior. Instead I think they need to be sent to the office or another area away from class. I grew up in California and when I was young there was a classroom set aside for students like that. There were cubicles around each seat, we were not allowed to take anything but a pencil an an assignment, and we were isolated. I didnt get sent down there too many times. The teacher was tough and I didnt like how lonely it felt. I would have much rather gotten a small vacation at home...

Maybe we should get rid of criminal laws as well, since certain groups commit more crimes.

Seems like a good idea to enroll the kid in a remedial behavioral course rather than let them go home and play xbox all day. But once again a good idea is easily thrashed as "SJW insanity" by low information morons who only speak in bumper sticker.

--both public and charter schools

A gift to the leftist teachers' unions that finance the Democrats and hate competition from charter schools.

This will really help CA improve public school test scores! Not only will the disruptive kids get included in tests now, they can also help ensure no one else is learning too. Win-Win.

Remember the last time "school-to-prison" pipeline wasn't busted?

Does Parkland Shooting ring a bell?

So yeah we are opposed to kids shooting up schools, you aren't figures.

Most kids on suspension are probably already on "remedial behavioral" courses....

Perhaps some alone time and they will change, and if they don't they don't affect the kids that want to be there and learn.

But hey Liberals are all about enabling bullies .... so .. figures.

I say, let schools do their job, and let the police do theirs:

"In 2016 and 2017, the sheriff's office received a number of tips about Cruz's threats to carry out a school shooting. The FBI learned that a YouTube user with the username "nikolas cruz" posted a message in September 2017 about becoming a school shooter, but the agency could not identify the user. In January 2018, someone contacted the FBI tip line with a direct complaint that Cruz had made a death threat, but the complaint was not forwarded to the local FBI office."

"After the shooting, the Broward County Sheriff's Office received widespread criticism for its handling of the police response, with much of the criticism being directed at Sheriff Scott Israel for not addressing loopholes that allowed Cruz to legally purchase a firearm despite his lengthy record of threatening behavior." en.wikipedia.org

But the schools here have police departments...

Speaking of Texas practices, you have to really have screwed up to get suspended out of school. If you are merely disruptive you get sent to In School Suspension. It's a cool room with no windows where you sit with all the other screw ups and do classwork, monitored by the biggest, meanest looking male teacher they can come up with.

If you really screw up, such as a fight, a hoax bomb (intent not required), steal from an employer while on a work-coop program, etc, you get send to "A School". It's where they house the delinquents for remedial socialization and ongoing education so they don't disrupt the school body.

Schools lose funding for absent students, and those includes those expelled.

No, you're just a lying POS.

IIRC from conversations with my fiance, this is becoming more common. The only suspensions given out are for violence or behavior that endangers other kids.

Look ma, Morons!

Suspending kids sends them home to be unsupervised. There they can get into even worse trouble.

They have special classrooms for children with emotional behavior disorders (EBD) and even special schools for these kids. That's the whole damn point of not suspending them.

We can't fix parents. We can keep the kid supervised and moving in the right direction. We can't do that if we just send them home.

You too need to shut up more often rather than proving you haven't a clue about the thread's issue.

Yes, it does.

Any other dumb questions?

No, you're just a lying POS.

How is it "lying", having a disruptive individual in the class room is tyrannical and bullying for everyone in the class room that is there to learn.

Unless you are going to assign the student an individual babysitter you are wrong again.

Suspending kids sends them home to be unsupervised. There they can get into even worse trouble.

So what .... let them do so, don't sacrifice the education of 100's of others to save one that doesn't want to be saved.

Equality in Opportunity, not outcomes.

Liberals are all about enabling bullies

The Act still allows suspension for basically anything that could be considered "bullying," including:

*attempting to cause, or threatening to cause physical injury to another person.
*Willfully using force or violence upon the person of another, except in self-defense
*Engaging in an act of bullying, which includes any severe or pervasive physical or verbal act or conduct, including communications made in writing or by means of an electronic act, directed toward one or more pupils that has or can be reasonably predicted to have the effect of one or more of the following:
(A) Placing a reasonable pupil or pupils in fear of harm to that pupil's or those pupils' person or property.
(B) Causing a reasonable pupil to experience a substantially detrimental effect on the pupil's physical or mental health.
(C) Causing a reasonable pupil to experience substantial interference with the pupil's academic performance.
(D) Causing a reasonable pupil to experience substantial interference with the pupil's ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school.
Maybe you should read the Act before complaining so much about something you know so little about.

#25 Good stuff, Joe.

Primary source is so much better than knee-jerk reaction.
