Zero tolerance and other exclusionary school discipline policies are pushing kids out of the classroom and into the criminal justice system at unprecedented rates—harming our students, our educators, and our communities.
There is a better way.
Join educators to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline.
- End suspensions and arrests for minor misbehavior.
- Adopt school-wide positive restorative justice practices and enhance training for all school personnel.
- Engage educators, students, parents, and community advocates to build and strengthen successful implementation.
Positive approaches to discipline can result in improved school climates and increased educational opportunities. Every student has a right to a quality education, to be treated with dignity, and to be provided with the opportunity to learn.
