Ontario to ban suspensions for children in Grade 3 and below in efforts to rid education system of racismA 2017 study reported Black students were more than twice as likely as other racialized and white students to be suspended at least once before graduating from high school Wait what? PrisonPlanet, I've got a feeling this won't end racism... They need to ban suspension across the board. Have the kids shadow a teacher and do some administrative work instead of sitting at home playing Xbox . I think positive reinforcement could help. Ok, so a kid can stab another kid and stay in school?
