State Senator Peggy Lehner, a Republican from Kettering, is working on a bill that would keep young students in school rather than home on suspension or, worse, after an expulsion from school. Her law would force schools to employ other discipline and de-escalation for students age 9 and under. When suspensions happen young, research shows, kids do worse later. We'll get persepctive, too, from a national expert who's pusing for schools nationwide to reform their approach to discipline.
