Bill bars schools from suspending children for uniform violations
June 6, 2015 - School Uniform
The Legislature has authorized a check that will bar open and licence schools for suspending or expelling facile propagandize students for violating propagandize uniform rules.
The check (Senate Bill 54) sponsored by Sen. Sharon Weston Broome, D-Baton Rouge, was given final thoroughfare Thursday with a 53-36 House vote, a smallest series of votes it could accept to pass. It formerly privileged a Senate and now goes to Gov. Bobby Jindal.
The magnitude was significantly scaled behind from Broome’s initial proposal. That would have barred schools from expelling or suspending students in kindergarten by third grade, unless their function acted “a hazard to a reserve or well-being” of others. That offer was widely against by propagandize districts and teachers.
Broome’s rewritten check usually relates to violations of propagandize uniform manners and encompasses students in preschool by fifth grade. But a senator pronounced she hopes it will start discourse about a predicament of children with behavioral issues.
