This bill will prevent Teachers from suspending defiant students. Students can be disruptive and refuse to work without consequences. According to this bill, Teachers still can remove disruptive students. However, many Administrators and office staff will send the students back to the classroom. These students will have a very hard time in the world of work as employers will not put up with disrespect and disruptive behavior. It is in the students’ best interest, (especially minority students and students with disabilities) to learn in a structured environment. Also, students should be encouraged to show proper respect to Teachers.
Please write letters to the editors, call your legislators, contact parent groups and go to school board meetings. We absolutely have to stop this. If students can be defiant and disobediant and refuse to follow instruction, they are not learning the life skills they are going to need to work in life.
