And, in any case, that's not the suspensions they are trying to curb. They are trying to curb the ones that are for generic "disruptions"; they aren't banning suspensions, they are pushing schools to seriously reconsider their use of suspensions and to eliminate the most casual offences.

This is like moving one category of theft from felony to misdemeanor, and y'all are treating it as declaring open-season on personal property.
