Students in LA Unified School District

Fish stay in schools. Why don’t kids?

In many L.A. schools, kids have been suspended for speaking out of turn, not doing homework, or slamming a door.

Punitive discipline doesn’t help students, it hurts them. Children who have been suspended or expelled are five times more likely to drop out.

Now, students are sticking up for their right to a good education and a successful future.
