Children's Legal Rights Journal presents "Discipline in Schools: Moving Beyond Zero Tolerance" Friday, October 17, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.
8:30 AM– 3:30 PM Philip H. Corboy Law Center Power Rogers & Smith Ceremonial Courtroom 25 E. Pearson St. Chicago
This one-day conference will explore the issue of school discipline. In January 2014, the Obama administration issued guidelines calling for an end to zero-tolerance policies in schools across the nation. Speakers will discuss the changing landscape of school discipline, including achievements and challenges in implementing new school practices. This conference will also focus on how reform efforts impact both the school-to-prison pipeline and discipline in charter schools.
