New advocacy guide on school discipline in NJ released

Posted on February 5, 2018

The Education Law Center (ELC) and the Association for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) released a new advocacy guide, School Discipline in New Jersey: A Toolkit for Students, Families and Advocates. It provides comprehensive and practical information to assist New Jersey students affected by school discipline policies.

The toolkit is designed to help advocates improve their school district’s approach to discipline, connect with other families and organizations working on changing school discipline, and become more informed about protecting student rights. Well-informed students, families, educators and community stakeholders can use this information to advocate for fair disciplinary practices in their schools and districts.
