We’re working on a documentary that explores the backlash against harsh school discipline policies across the country. In Minnesota, there’s a bill before the legislature that would change how school districts across the state approach discipline. The proposed Student Inclusion and Engagement Act comes at a moment when researchers and educators are expressing concern about the disproportionate use of suspensions and expulsions on students of color and students with disabilities.

This week on the podcast, ARW associate producer Suzanne Pekow speaks with Josh Crosson, advocacy manager for education nonprofit MinnCAN. Crosson is part of a coalition that drafted the bill.
