South King County Discipline Coalition

Disproportionate discipline too often puts students, particularly Black and Brown students, on a path to prison rather that promoting college and career success. The Discipline Coalition believes this is unacceptable and that it is all of our responsibility to end disproportionate discipline.

Our vision is that schools will stop suspending and expelling students and will shift from a punitive approach to a restorative approach. We envision a school culture that recognizes the dignity and humanity of all and fosters healthy, accountable relationships between schools, families, and the broader community.
