NBC San Diego:

California students in kindergarten through eighth grade can no longer be suspended for “willful defiance,” under a new law signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday.

Senate Bill 419 will make it illegal for public and charter schools to suspend students for “willful defiance.” According to the San Diego Unified School District, willful defiance is defined as “disrupting school activities or otherwise refusing to follow the valid authority of school personnel.”

For example, if a student refuses a teacher’s request to take off his or her hat or hoodie in the classroom, that would fall under willful defiance.

Senator Nancy Skinner from Berkeley wrote the bill and she said, “Ending willful defiance suspensions will keep kids in school where they belong and where teachers and counselors can help them thrive.” Keep Reading More Here

How will we have a society with respectable adults if they are not held accountable for their actions during a very key stage of their young lives? What does the very liberal Governor Newsom think that this will accomplish? Who will support and protect the educators?

We can’t wait to see how this works out.
