Conexion Americas and Stand for Children will host a discussion with Cami Anderson, the former superintendent of Newark Public Schools and alternative high schools in New York City, and founder of the Discipline Revolution Project. The discussion will explore how schools and communities can advocate for a reduction in exclusionary discipline practices, such as out of school suspensions and expulsion, and increasing preventative and restorative practices. Anderson will talk about how schools can create a culture that supports the social, emotional, and academic growth of students through discipline reform in Memphis and Shelby County. Childcare will be provided.
