Special Education and Discipline, Part IV

This is the fourth of a six part series exploring special education and discipline in our public schools. Our guest is Ronald Lospennato, Director, School-to-Prison Reform Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. He and host Cindy Robertson discuss the project and how it relates to children with emotional and behavioral difficulties, and why the “zero tolerance” policy doesn’t work. The show’s Legal Brief, with DRC Legal Director Amy Messer, takes a look at suspensions, expulsions, and manifestation determinations.
