Metro Nashville Public Schools has one of the highest student suspension rates in Tennessee and disproportionately high suspension rates for children of color. High suspension rates lead to greater risk of school dropout, resulting in increasing social and economic costs to our community.

School Discipline: NPT Reports Town Hall will be a discussion of how disciplinary issues are addressed and the root causes of disparities in school discipline. We will also discuss how we as a community can work together to address this problem in order to create a better future for our students. Special guest Daniel Losen, director of UCLA’s Center for Civil Rights Remedies, will focus on school discipline and its relationship to the “school-to-prison” pipeline.

This town hall will be recorded for future broadcast. School Discipline: NPT Reports Town Hall premieres on NPT Friday, Sept. 29, at 8 p.m.

I just watched school discipline on tv today, what ever happened to keeping kids after school? there was mention of hitting kids, I went to Detroit Mi. schools, and yes we were hit by teachers, with their open bare hands. one boy high school hit the teacher back, he was sent to the office, got detention{stayed after school} And no student wanted anything to do with him, because of his behavior. I am 75 yrs old and I know things have really changed since I went to school. But school and getting a good education is one of the most important things in a child’s life and it starts in kindergarten. If children know the rules and are corrected in the earlier grades, they shouldn’t be a problem in the later grades. Thank You, Donna
