A community conversation about the problem of school suspension. The data at the local, state, and national levels shows that our most marginalized and vulnerable students are disproportionately suspended. And once excluded, students are more likely to face further discipline or justice-system involvement if they are male, Black, Hispanic, disabled, or economically disadvantaged.
At this event, you’ll get an update on Kingston City School District’s use of restorative practices; hear community members share their suspension stories; discuss possible alternatives to suspension at the local level; and learn how we can support the proposed Solutions not Suspensions Bill that is currently before the NYS Legislature.
