Democrat & Chronicle’s Justin Murphy: “A landmark community report in 2014 drew attention to that problem and helped set in motion a series of reforms. Now, nearly five years later, the results are coming in. Discipline data compiled into a new report by The Children’s Agenda shows that suspension rates have fallen substantially with the implementation of restorative justice practices and a new code of conduct. Perhaps more noteworthy, corresponding academic figures show a decline in the number of students who are suspended from school and subsequently fail a course.”
The Children’s Agenda advocates for effective policies and drives evidenced-based solutions for the health, education and success of children. We are especially committed to children who are vulnerable because of poverty, racism, health inequities and trauma.
