Susan Lontine Poses The Question, Why Would You Expel A Child In Kindergarden?


Mar 17, 2017

The Colorado early childhood suspension and expulsion policy does not sit well with State Representative Susan Lontine. Currently suspension and expulsions are not prohibited for young children and there are no rules for how long suspensions can last. Who are the children that typically face expulsion? What sort of behavior would be the cause for a young child in kindergarten to be expelled? Lontine answers these questions and discusses a bipartisan bill created to transform the current policy.
