The Project

I am working on encouraging schools in the Jackson Public School district to consider alternative discipline methods to suspension and expulsion so that fewer children will be out of school as a result of discipline issues. Also, as a second part of the project, I am working with those same community partners to establish a model to train attorneys, parents and other advocates to represent students at suspension or explusion hearings.
