Student Suspensions Increase In Baltimore Schools

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Baltimore City schools suspended 25 percent more students last year than they did the previous year.

The Baltimore Sun reports that nearly 8,500 students were suspended last year. That's up from 6,760 in the 2014-2015 school year.

City Schools CEO Sonja Santelises started in the position in July. She says the district is examining what lead to the increase under her predecessor, Gregory Thornton. She says the increase is "disconcerting."

If you cant behave in school you should be thrown out lawyers or anyone should be able to reverse it..later if you feel you can behave you get one chance to finish..any slip ups and its bye go to GED classes..also GED should not hold the same clout as a real can still go to college with one..but you will be required to take a entrance placement test as they do now.Me and My kids all have diplomas I had to work in school to get it..not quit in 10 th grade and take a few tests..these people don't deserve the same recognition.
