    New Orleans Schools Suspend Nearly 30 Percent of Students

    A recent study by the Southern Poverty Law Center shows almost 30 percent of students in the New Orleans Recovery School District are suspended from class each year. Study author Shakti Belway says schools handcuff large numbers of students for minor infractions, some of them as young as six years old. Charter schools enforce “silent lunches” in cafeterias, forbidding children to speak to one another.

    “Withholding education is not appropriate punishment” for behavioral problems, says Florida Family Court Judge Irene Sullivan, author of Raised by the Courts: One Judges Insight Into Juvenile Justice.
