The EEC, together with the Washington State Minority and Justice Commission, is proud to host a five part professional growth series around the school-to-prison pipeline. The first of the series “Eliminating the Pipeline” will be held on April 27, 2017. Educators and those involved with the justice system are encouraged to visit our event page and learn more!
Earlier this legislative session, the EEC supported Senate Bill 5155 which prohibits suspension or expulsion of students in K-2. The bill represents EEC’s longstanding commitment to ending the unfair disciplinary practices that disproportionally affects children of color. Read why we supported SB 5155 here and why the EEC will continue to target policies and procedures related to discipline to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for all of the state’s students.
