Not yet on an agenda so a good time to start pushing for this bill!
Where do we want our children?
In the Courtroom or in the Classroom?
Stop the School to Prison Pipeline!
Support Delegate Dickie Bell’s bill HB296 which only affects K through 3rd grade children.
Currently, students at any and all levels may be suspended or expelled from school. HB296 eliminates suspension or expulsion for students in preschool through grade three except for drug offenses, firearm offenses, or certain criminal acts.
