It's exciting for me to be a part of the movement to reform school discipline policies, in California and around the nation. I've met dedicated advocates, innovative teachers and principals, and education leaders who are deeply committed to teaching students how to make responsible decisions — while keeping them in school.

The pace of progress has been almost dizzying. It seems that nearly every week, there's a new school or district reporting great results, some new study highlighting the urgent need for reform, or a new group of students speaking out and organizing for change.

The California Endowment created The School Discipline News to chronicle these developments, share the latest with policymakers, and help connect the increasingly wide network of reformers working to introduce common-sense school discipline policies.

Our spring issue was just published and is available here. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did. And, I hope you'll get in touch with me if you have any ideas for our next edition.
