Restorative justice remains a new way of thinking for Los Angeles’ 1,300 public schools — even as administrators continue to call the cops on troublesome students.
About 13,200 minors held in detention facilities will have funding for their educational services, recreational programs and legal aid cut by the federal government.
Federal data show that charter-school teachers leave charters at higher rates than at public schools.
Twenty-two charters — nearly all of them in high-poverty neighborhoods — accounted for 42 percent of L.A. charter schools’ nearly 3,700 suspensions last year.
Los Angeles charters suspended black students at almost three times the rate of traditional schools; students with disabilities were suspended at nearly four times the non-charter school rate.
