PEOC hosting school suspension training workshop

The Parent Education Organizing Council (PEOC) is hosting a workshop for parents and community members to learn about student suspension from school on Tuesday, May 19.

Workshop will begin at 6 p.m. and run until 8 p.m. focusing on the Paterson Public School’s “over-use” of suspension and expulsion as a form of discipline.

PEOC has been a staunch advocate against suspension of city young people from school. This training is particularly for parents and those concerns about Paterson students being pushed out of school and into the justice system.

Dinner will be served. For more information contact: rebecca@peocnj.org or call 862-239-5876.
