Days after her Commission recommended rescinding guidelines for schools to reduced (and hopefully eliminated) discriminatory discipline policies n schools (see DeVos Commission Recommends Rescinding School Discipline Guidelines Designed To Reduce Discrimination), U.S. Education Secretary did, indeed, pull the plug on them today.
At my link on that recommendation, you can see a ton of resources explaining why it’s a very bad decision.
Here are a few tweets about today’s development:
