What to do instead?

We are often asked what should we do instead of suspending and expelling. This quote from one of our students, shared at YouthSpeak in January of 2014, is one place to start:

“I feel schools need to come up with better solutions. We need after school programs, detention, in-school suspension, or even community service: at least we would be in school learning. Or if you have to expel someone, the schools need to have something for them to fall back on such as home schooling programs or alternative schools. Us students need education to be successful in life. All students have a right to an education!”
