MCPP signs on to letter to Department of Education

By Mississippi Center for Public Policy
June 20, 2018

Mississippi Center for Public Policy recently signed on to a national letter urging the United States Department of Education to rescind a “Dear Colleague” letter from the Obama administration regarding school discipline.

This letter warned school districts that received federal funding against disparate outcomes in the implementation of their school discipline policies.

“As attorneys in the conservative movement, we believe that the suspension ‘Dear Colleague’ letter is not only poor public policy – studies have shown it has a negative impact on academic performance – but also an illegal exercise of federal administrative power and an unjustified intrusion into state and local matters," the letter said.
