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

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.
