Memphis students, once in juvenile detention, offer ideas to reduce suspensions

Students were teaching adults this week as Memphis student advocates shared their recommendations on how to reduce out-of-school suspensions and expulsions.

Six students at G.W. Carver College and Career Academy, an alternative school, worked for months on suggestions for Shelby County Schools leaders that they believe will lead to safer schools, more engaged students and more academic success.

The students have already spurred district action: The school board ordered a feasibility study for free city bus passes for high school students after hearing from the group in December that transportation was a barrier to getting to school, jobs and after-school activities. After learning of the students’ efforts, district leaders wanted to hear more.

The latest recommendations include eliminating suspensions and expulsions for elementary school students, starting morning group check-ins with teachers, paying more attention to character building, and creating rooms for students to sort out conflict before misbehavior escalates.

All the students in Brothers and Sisters Speaking Out for Change were once in juvenile detention and have been trained in advocacy by the nonprofit BRIDGES and mentors from the University of Memphis law school.
