BAN Suspensions from PreK-5th Grade NOW!
Parents, teachers, and leaders in PPS have a common goal: support the academic development and personal growth of young people. Educators work on a daily basis to build upon student strengths and address challenges, and we know how demanding their jobs can be. Both students and educators must be supported in the effort to create Solutions, Not Suspensions for young people in Pittsburgh. Learn more about the need for the ban in our 2015-16 PPS Suspensions Report.
