“Thanks to the district’s successful approach to discipline, the number of days lost to suspension in 2010-11 plummeted to 26,286, from 46,006—an impressive 43 percent drop in one year… Today only a small fraction of our students get suspended, and the numbers are shrinking.” – LAUSD’s Earl Perkins, in Education Week (A Successful Discipline Policy Thrives on Consistency)
