    What you need is an alternative program that does not send the student home or onto the streets.  Usually every school district has a school where all the problem students.  These student just cannot fit into the traditiona structure of the public education structure.  You send the suspensions there and make them do very basic clean up and or psychological treatment.    Clean up means they clean toilets and or the campus.

    Suspensions can be improved by replacing them with tailored positive behavioral support programs and direct-instruction based educational interventions.

    This would render suspensions redundant and have even the most behaviorally and educationally challenged kids graduating from high-school and finding better jobs in 2 to 3 years rather than dropping out! Check out my hub on direct instruction. It's the biggest science-proven secret never told in education, as most educators jobs would become redundant if implemented.

    Suspensions are overused and misused. They are not effective and more often than not, students repeat inappropriate behavior. The question one needs to ask is, "Why are students not learning?" Answering this question with "because they don't act appropriately" is ..... To read more, … to-Improve
