The Heritage Foundation hosted a discussion on the Obama administration federal school discipline directive. In 2014, the Education and Justice Departments sent a letter notifying schools undergoing federal civil rights investigations that they risked losing federal funding if they had a higher number of referrals of minority students to law enforcement for discipline. Following the deadly February 14, 2018 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) had urged Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to get rid of this directive. Panelists in this discussion examined the pros and cons and also talked about the possibility of the Trump administration rescinding the policy. close
