Solutions Not Suspensions

Solutions Not Suspensions (SNS) is a campaign to end discipline disparities in public school systems. This trailblazing effort is founded on MMEP’s own research, which revealed the way overly-harsh discipline measures and unjust racial biases in local education systems contribute directly to the disproportionate push out of African American boys through detention, suspension, and expulsion. SNS focuses on cultural change within schools, redefining how schools perceive, interact with, and respond to the concerns of African American students and reframing how students view themselves, which empowers them and increases feelings of self-efficacy and connection to school.
