#HeadlineNews: State Bill on School Disciplinary Action
In the midst of national efforts to promote disciplinary policies that keep children in the classroom,
legislation that would limit the length of suspensions for all but the most serious infractions and put
an end to disciplinary fines is under consideration in the state General Assembly.
The bills, which would limit out-of-school suspensions to no more than three days for infractions that do not
threaten the safety or disrupt the education of other students, have the support of a group of student activists
in Chicago who gathered for a rally downtown on Wednesday.
“We’re not asking for no discipline; we’re asking for common sense discipline,” Mariama Bangura, 16, a junior
at Roosevelt High School in Albany Park, said at a news conference at Chicago Public Schools headquarters.
CPS and some of its privately run charter schools have come under scrutiny for strict discipline policies
of the sort that some education advocates say create a “school to prison pipeline” by pushing kids out of
school for minor violations.
Charter schools especially have drawn fire after state and district data was released showing those schools
have far higher expulsion and suspension rates than district run-schools.
The Noble Network of Charter Schools, which has been criticized for collecting hundreds of
thousands of dollars in fines associated with discipline, said Friday they would be dropping the $5 fine
issued against students facing detention.
The student group VOYCE along with the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance helped draft the bills under
consideration in Springfield, according to Shawn Brown, a campaign director for VOYCE. Similar efforts by
student and civil rights groups in Maryland, Texas, California and Colorado have been successful, he said.
CPS is not backing the bill, which spokesman Joel Hood said goes too far.
“While CPS and VOYCE are aligned in their efforts to reduce suspensions and keep students in school,
(the bill), as drafted, places strict limitations on administrators' ability to manage school safety and could
potentially interfere with law enforcement's jurisdiction and ability to enforce safety on school grounds or
at school-sponsored events,” Hood said in an email.
Supporters of the bills under consideration say there is too much disparity over how discipline is enforced
across the state, and even within a district, and the legislation is a step toward a set of common standards.
