Illinois law to require schools to rethink discipline
A new law will require Illinois schools to develop more measured discipline policies beginning next school year. The Daily Chronicle reports a bill signed into law this summer by Gov. Bruce Rauner requires schools to end zero-tolerance policies, limit out-of-school suspensions, address bullying and create a parent-teacher advisory board on school discipline. The law also says sending students to alternative schools should be a last resort for discipline.
