School Suspensions Are an Adult Behavior

Rosemarie Allen, Institute for Racial Equity and Excellence, proposes that we reduce school and child care suspensions and expulsions by shifting the behaviors of adults. She recommends that we increase adult efforts to teach pro-social skills, and look for what is good, right, and best about each child.
