A new bill designed to keep young students in schools and not expelled picked up the Governor’s signature on Monday. The bill protects preschoolers from being kicked out critical early childhood education programs. The bill instead asks the school to document steps they will take to help correct the bad behavior. Democrat State Rep. Juliana Stratton says shocking as it may seem expulsion of preschoolers happens and it impacts some communities more than others.
The bill will allow for children to be taken out of school setting if safety is a concern.
