At the largest charter school network in New York City, strict academic and behavior standards set the stage for learning. That doesn’t exclude children as young as 5 or 6 years old, who can be given out-of-school suspensions if they don’t follow the rules. Special correspondent for education John Merrow explores what that policy means for both the child and the school.
Editor’s note: Since this story aired, Eva Moskowitz, CEO of Success Academy, has raised concerns that during her interview she was only asked questions about suspension policy in general and was not given an opportunity to respond to Jamir Geidi and his mother. NewsHour regrets that decision. You can read Ms. Moskowitz’ letter here and NewsHour’s responsehere.
