(Mobile, Ala.) – A human rights organization is ready to face off against the Mobile County School System.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of six students alleging their constitutional rights have been violated.
The group says the problem stems from something called “The Push Out Crisis.”
The SPLC says students in Mobile County Public Schools are being pushed out of school through repeated and long-term suspensions for minor, non-violent offenses. The group also argues the students were not given the opportunity to defend themselves.
From what I recall reading the behavioral guideline book from The Mobile County Public School System when I attend was the rule that if a student is to be expelled from the system; a hearing must be held first.
I don’t know the exact details of the case, however if those students were not given the opportunity to defend themselves then lady justice should be on their side.
