Malloy asserted in his veto message of the proposed school suspension bill that the measure would affect minority students the most, an argument also made by several members of the legislature’s Black and Puerto Rican Caucus.
But it enjoyed strong support from the state’s teachers unions, who argued their members need more protection.
One would think automatically assuming minorities would be the ones acting out racist, but that word managed not to be levied in Malloy's direction.
When school suspensions got out of the hands of the teacher and principal of each individual school, and situation, is lost on this suspended many times former student. Furthermore, that anyone ever thought an actual bill would be a viable solution borders on comical. Tragic comedy, to be sure.
