In 2016-17, 48 percent of out-of-school suspensions in the Prince George's County Public Schools were for disrespect and disruption. The same school year, 1 in 4 children suspended out-of-school were students with disabilities. Statewide, a quarter of elementary school children who were suspended in 2016-17 were from Prince George’s County.

What do these numbers mean for school climate for all children? What can we do to stop the pushout of young people who need the most support? Join advocates from the Maryland Suspension Representation Project on November 14 at 6:30 pm at G. James Gholson Middle School to learn more about your rights in the school discipline process and to share your experiences. Hosted by Delegate Erek Barron and co-sponsored by Carolyn Boston, Vice Chair PGCPS School Board.
