Skip to comments.Trump scrapping Obama-era rule that turned schools into ‘war zones’
Posted on 03/24/2018 3:31:26 PM PDT by conservative98
The Trump administration plans this summer to scrap a controversial Obama-era discipline rule forced on schools to close racial gaps in suspensions and arrests but that critics say pressures educators to turn a blind eye to escalating bad behavior.
The federal directive, issued jointly in 2014 by the US departments of Education and Justice, warned public school districts receiving federal funding including New York City that they could face investigation and funding cuts if they fail to reduce statistical disparities in discipline by race. On average, the administration noted, black students are suspended at three times the rate of their white peers.

Why wait until summer? Do it now, before even more harm is done. Don't wait until the next school year for it to go into effect!
Good! MAGA! :)
Scrap it, and replace it with the MLK Rule. Judged not by the color of skin but content of character. Watch the reaction, lol.
Another small victory that will be overlooked by the “Trump sold us out!” crowd.
Trayvon Martin is one example...
This is very good if it happens. Apparently, the Administration wants to let the school districts finish the calendar year and start in late August under the new rules.
That’s a good orderly way to do it. All parties will know, the districts, the teachers, the students and the parents. It’s hard to change disciplines during that same school year.
More of Holder’s criminal “justice” legacy.
Joe Biden championed the law that turned schools into defense-free zones back in the early 90’s.
Fedgub has NO business in K-12.
Michael Brown is another.
I’m not a huge Trump fan, but I will absolutely give credit for this. What an ignorant rule.
Good observation. But after a second thought, I suspect that they’re not overlooking it. They might be gnashing their teeth, muttering obscenities and vowing to attack people in the streets.
Bumper stickers, signs, cameras to guard the bumper stickers and signs, and courage. Those are what we need as soon as possible for the midterm elections. The President will need the support from Congress on some very important work.
Dash cams are cheap, BTW, and some of them will mount in all kinds of ways and places. There’s no excuse for cowardice. And some of us live in areas where our stuff won’t be bothered anyway.
We won’t all get everything that we want. That doesn’t happen. But we can sure get more of what we want, if we do it right.
“overlooked by the Trump sold us out! crowd.”
Yup. There were so many of these negative nancy FReepukes yesterday that they forgot what Trump gave us at SCOTUS, ICE, the economy, the OMB etc.
Don’t forget pulling out of the Paris Scam and gutting the EPA of eco-Nazis.
Yup. That’s why I only post here on FR not everyday because most Freepers are a bunch of narrow-minded wusses who dont know this is a long game for Trump, not a short one.
His remarks a few years ago about not needing an AR-15 because all you have to do is
'open up the sliding door of his home and fire both barrels of his wife's shotgun to scare away the bad guys'
reveals his ignorance about firearms and crime in the USA.
The voice of wisdom and experience from Shotgun Joe.
“Yup. There were so many of these negative nancy FReepukes yesterday that they forgot what Trump gave us at SCOTUS, ICE, the economy, the OMB etc.”
They’re even noisier today, and apparently rather special.
