End Racist Zero Tolerance Policies in Ohio

Last session the Ohio Senate took a stance – They want to continue criminalizing Ohio public school students through the use of Zero Tolerance Policies. As a result, over 200,000 Ohio kids will be suspended or expelled this school year mostly for non-violent offenses.

In the final days of the session, Chairwoman of the Education Committee Peggy Lehner pulled out an amendment to HB 410 that would have eliminated Zero Tolerance in the state of Ohio. This came after she repeatedly assured our activists in Columbus, and many other stakeholders that the new measure will go through without resistance.

 

Tell Senator Peggy Lehner to Curb school suspensions.
