Sep 15, 2009

Discussion of what schools can do to stop pushout and shift toward a culture that treats students with dignity and respects their right to an education.  Speakers discussed elements of a model school code including preventive disciplinary policies, protocols for police involvement in school, and frameworks for high quality education.  This call was part of an ongoing, collective effort to draft a human rights-based Model School Code that will be discussed at the upcoming ABA-CRLC Children's Rights Summit in Chicago on October 23.
