State Moves Toward Better Learning Opportunities for Expelled Students
January 8, 2018
A few years ago, a group of lawyers sued the state, claiming that two students were denied their right to an education because they had been expelled. One of them was a boy of color who moved to another town after he was expelled.
“The new school district didn’t provide him with any education at all — and actually kept him out of school longer than his expulsion,” said Marisa Halm, a lawyer for the Center for Children’s Advocacy, and part of the team that sued the state.
