How Should Baltimore Schools Handle Violent Students?

 My latest Baltimore Progressive Community Examiner column is up. (Apologies for the time off — a massive injury has kept me largely bedridden for a week, but pain or no, I gotta get to work for sanity’s sake.) The subject is Baltimore City Public Schools’ rule that students who commit violent acts in school must be barred — permanently — from area public schools. They’ll be allowed no access to alternative schools, home instruction (unless their folks can homeschool, an unlikely proposition for most), or any city educational resources. In the short run, it looks like a great thing for schools: Overall suspension and expulsion rates are down. But what are the long-term prospects? What the heck are these kids to do? 

Do read the column and think about it. And be sure to listen to the Anthony McCarthy Show tonight at 6pm Eastern. I’ll be among the guests addressing this hot-button and very important topic. You can listen in Baltimore via 88.9 FM. You can listen from anywhere in the world via the WEAA Web site.
