Action Alert
Act now to ensure that Maryland's youngest learners have every opportunity to learn

TAKE ACTION! Ensure that Maryland's youngest learners are not subject to unfair and disproportionate suspensions and expulsions.

Maryland has a school discipline problem. Research shows that suspensions put young students on a path to academic failure. Children who are removed are more likely to drop out, and more likely to be pushed into the school-to-prison pipeline.

Support House Bill 425 / Senate Bill 651 to stop the overuse of harsh disciplinary practices on Maryland's youngest students.

During the 2015-16 school year, 2,363 students in pre-kindergarten through the second grade were suspended or expelled.

Research shows that suspensions put our youngest students on a path to academic failure and that suspensions and expulsions are ineffective. Children who are removed are more likely to drop out, and more likely to be pushed into the School to Prison Pipeline.

Support House Bill 425 Senate Bill 651 to stop the overuse of harsh disciplinary practices on Maryland's youngest students.
