Yet another insane progressive ‘reform’ to further ruin California schools in 2020
The active, often enthusiastic, embrace of foolishness by the progressive Left seems to be accelerating. California is so dominated by Democrats that new laws based on fantasy often are passed by the state legislature and signed into law by the governor on an annual basis. Next year, 2020, will see California’s government schools further decline, as teachers and their administrators will be forbidden to suspend students for willful disobedience in the first through fifth grades. KRON TV reports:
Starting next school year, it will be illegal for public schools in the state to suspend students in first through fifth grade for willfully defying teachers or administrators.
Then, from 2021 through 2025, it will be temporarily extended to kids in grades six through eight.
Supporters say suspensions for willful defiance are disproportionately used against students of color.
The logical conclusion is that the solons in Sacramento believe that California’s state-funded teachers are a bunch of racists who suspend students out of bigotry toward their race. Oddly enough, the California Teachers Association is the biggest political spender in the state, yet has not exerted any effort in defending its membership from this charge of racism by its members.
And what do the teachers expect will happen when willfully disruptive students can remain in their classrooms, with no recourse?
Needless to say, the primary victims will be found in schools with heavy minority enrollment, where students who desire to learn will be unable to do so, as classroom chaos prevents their (racist CTA member) teachers from actually teaching. They will go on to be unable to get further schooling and good jobs, creating yet more demand from progs for a racial spoils system.
