California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed off on legislation banning schools in the state from suspending students for disruptive behavior.

Senate Bill 419, signed into law by Newsom on Monday, will amend the California Education Code to prohibit public and charter schools in the state from suspending students in grades 4-8 for “disrupting school activities or otherwise willfully defying the valid authority of those school personnel engaged in the performance of their duties.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Existing law already prohibited schools from suspending or recommending expulsion for students enrolled in kindergarten or in grades 1-3 for such actions.

The move has been met with opposition from the Charter School Development Center, based in Sacramento, which told the station that “Charter schools were created to be public schools exempt from most sections of the California Education Code. Imposing unnecessary restrictions on these schools of choice is counterintuitive to the original intent of the legislature.”

“Charter law requires each school’s petition to address issues of expulsion and this law would effectively overwrite the language of 1,300 charter petitions causing significant disruption at the local level. Further, this bill is based on no credible evidence of an expulsion problem in California charter schools,” the group added. “To the contrary, charter schools often serve as a school of last resort of students who have been expelled from traditional schools and these pupils thrive in a charter school environment.”

    They did that in FL and one of the little shits is responsible for the Parkland shooting. Talk about inviting trouble. Someone has to be in charge. If the adult stands back and allows it, the trouble making student is always happy to be the one. I would prefer the teacher myself. Then again, we are talking wildly liberal California teachers so they are probably one and the same…trouble looking for a place to happen.

    They tried that in FL. One of those students that could not be punished, if memory serves, is the Parkland shooter. Someone has to be in charge. The trouble making student will be more than happy to step up and take over in place of the teacher. Then again, we are talking insanely liberal California so there may not be much of a difference either way. I found that children are always happy to live down to your expectations. Wouldn’t you prefer they have a higher level to shoot for?

    Keep them in school where teachers and counselors can help them?! Well if the teachers and counselors were doing their job then there shouldn’t have been a problem with suspensions or expulsions in the first place.

    They are trying to get rid of charter schools . Also this has been going on for years. My son graduated this year and when he was in the 7th grade he stole a cell phone. We wanted him suspended and were told that due to the fact he was Hispanic they were not allowed to suspend him !!!!!!! Crazy !!! He is now a irresponsible, unproductive member of society- nothing is his fault!
