U.S. ED Hosts #RethinkDiscipline Google Chat

Event Dates: 
Thursday, July 30, 2015 - 15:00 to 17:00

The google hangout will mark the release a new set of interactive, zoomable, clickable discipline maps – to be posted to ED’s new www.ed.gov/rethinkdiscipline site -- to help educators and communities to better understand the prevalence of out-of-school suspensions in their community.

The google hangout and new maps are part of ED’s new public awareness campaign  -- #RethinkDiscipline. This campaign is intended to:

  • Highlight national data on discipline, particularly suspensions, expulsions, and other practices that remove students from instruction;
  • Clarify the impact of suspension on student outcomes and school communities; and
  • Share how schools and districts are working to implement effective alternatives to suspension by addressing student social, emotional, and behavioral needs. 

ED will be using the tweets below to get out the word about tomorrow’s discussion.
