Senate Education Committee. Written Testimony of Morgan Craven, Texas Appleseed. OPENING EXCERPT: A major concern that many students, parents, educators, researchers, and advocates have with Chapter 37 of the Education Code, which covers “Discipline, Law and Order” in schools, is that it is heavily focused on exclusionary and criminal responses to misbehaviors in schools, including in-school suspensions, out-of-school suspensions, alternative school placements, expulsions, corporal punishment, restraints, complaints, arrests, and court referrals.
Texas Appleseed and Texas Housers write to provide the following comments on the Extension for Deadline of Submission of Assessment of Fair Housing for Consolidated Plan Participants published as a Notice in the Federal Register at 83 Fed.Reg. 683 (January 5, 2018) (Notice).
