A new law signed by Gavin Newsom bans schools from suspending students solely for disruptive behavior.
Senate Bill 419, signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom 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.”
It is sad when #CaDems claim to be the party of students and teachers, yet pass ridiculous laws. This bill was one of the issues discussed in my meeting with California teachers this past convention. https://t.co/CY2FdBbeI7

It is will soon be illegal in California for both public and charter schools to suspend disruptive students from kindergarten through eighth grade
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday signed into law Senate Bill 419, which permanently prohibits willful defiance suspensions in grades four and five. It also bans such suspensions in grades six through eight for five years.
The law goes into effect on July 1, 2020.
A previous law had already banned schools from suspending defiant kids through third grade.
Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, who wrote the new law, said it would “keep kids in school where they belong and where teachers and counselors can help them thrive.”
“SB 419 puts the needs of kids first,” she said. More
I worked in a school 37 years. When a disruptive student is allowed to stay in class (and, listen, you can’t even imagine some of these disruptions), it is totally unfair to every OTHER kid in that class who wants to learn and behaves the right way.

This is how Democrats manufacture criminals in our society. If there are no repercussions to your actions, then why should they stop?
I feel sorry for the educators and honest students, that have to put up with these defiant kids. Now they are given the green light to keep harassing teachers and other students.
They will now stand up and say, I will do whatever I want and you can’t do anything about it.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
