Resolution To Partner with MALDEF on Reform Expulsion and Suspensions from Schools
Whereas, over one million students are either expelled or suspended annually from schools in California; and
Whereas the California Legislature has before it legislative bills that call for the reform of expulsion and suspension policies that have led to a disproportionate number of Latinas being expelled or suspended from school; and
Whereas MALDEF has initiated proposals for reforms in expulsion and suspensions in California;
Therefore, be it resolved that California LULAC partner with MALDEF to reform the expulsion and suspensions policies that have led to over one million expulsions and suspensions in California, join in support of legislation that will reform these policies, and urges Governor Brown to sign comprehensive forms of expulsion and suspension policies
Approved this 30th day of June 2012.
