National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition Responds to Harmful Federal School Safety Commission Guidance

Posted by admin

Today, the National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition (NJJDPC), of which CCLP is a Steering Committee Member, responded to yesterday’s report from the Federal School Safety Commission. CCLP and NJJDP strongly oppose the Commission’s recommendation to rescind the “Rethinking Discipline” policy guidance jointly promulgated by the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S Department of Justice in 2014. This guidance was issued based on research on well-documented disparities in school discipline and the shared value of ensuring that all children have the opportunity to achieve a high-quality education.
