In order to learn, students need to be in school. That’s why we’re a proud member of the Solutions Not Suspensions coalition, which is working to improve Minnesota’s school discipline policies, focusing on keeping learners in class, particularly black and Native American students and students with disabilities, who have been most negatively and disproportionately impacted by exclusionary discipline. By scaling back exclusionary practices like school and classroom removals, helping educators lead on crafting alternatives and proactively confronting racial bias in current practice, Minnesota can become a national leader on school discipline and help all students thrive
