Statement from Attorney General Kamala D. Harris on National Week of Action on School Discipline

Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Contact: (415) 703-5837, agpressoffice@doj.ca.gov

During this National Week of Action on School Discipline, I encourage local and state policymakers to consider the range of alternatives to suspension and expulsion. We need to hold kids accountable and help them learn from their mistakes, but also keep them in school and on course to graduate. As a career prosecutor, I know that frequent use of out-of-school suspension for non-violent offenses can set the stage for the type of chronic truancy that leads to students dropping out of school and becoming victims of crime.

That is why I am pleased to recognize this National Week of Action on School Discipline from October 1-8 in California and across the United States.
