“””That new discipline policy took effect in 2013. It was at the vanguard of the Obama administrations efforts to address the school to prison pipeline. Beginning in 2009, it opened hundreds of investigations or sued to force districts to adopt lenient discipline guidelines. This push was formalized in a 2014 Dear Colleague letter to the nations public school superintendents and board members that not only discourages student arrests, but holds districts liable for the actions of school resource officers.
After meeting with Obama officials in the White House, Runcie persuaded the Broward County Sheriffs Office and Fort Lauderdale Police Department to agree to stop arresting students who committed misdemeanor crimes the district deemed nonviolent including assault, theft, vandalism, drugs and public fighting. This included multiple offenders such as Cruz. Law enforcement agreed for the most part to let school officials handle such delinquents through two counseling programs: PROMISE and the Behavior Intervention Program.”””
“””In a related program, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel also agreed to back off arrests of students who commit such crimes outside of schools, offering them civil citations and the same restorative justice” counseling instead of incarceration, even for repeat offenders. Restorative justice is a controversial alternative punishment in which delinquents gather in healing circles with counselors and sometimes even the victims of their crime and discuss their feelings and the “root causes” of their anger and actions.”””
“””Within two years of adopting the discipline reforms, Broward’s juvenile recidivism rate surged higher than the Florida state average.”””
Commie bastards in the last admin caused this.
Pillar or post. There is no balance.
Those in the Obama Regime were working to turn America into a Marxist system. What better way than to turn America’s schools into hell holes without discipline that destroy the learning process.
The information you have posted has been out there since March. You would think the media would have picked up on it. Not! They would throw themselves on the tracks rather than have the seams break on the Obama legacy.
