SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Students who show up to class unprepared or with a bad attitude would no longer be subject to suspension under a resolution approved Tuesday by the school board.
The policy makes the San Francisco Unified School District one of only a few in the nation to take the position that suspending students for minor offenses does more harm than good.
“Violence is not part of this. Activities that can hurt another student physically is not part of this,” said Superintendent Richard Carranza. “The worst case scenarios, are not what we’re talking about here.”
