Bubble Gun Suspension May Prompt New Legislation

After a 5-year-old Colorado girl was suspended for bringing a Princess bubble gun to school, Padres & Jóvenes Unidos (PJU) spoke out against the impracticality of using suspension and expulsion in early childhood education.

"You would think you didn't need a law to protect very, very young children from being unnecessarily removed from their classroom and their right to education, but we feel this is necessary," said Daniel Kim, Director of Youth Organizing for Padres & Jovenes Unidos.

PJU is currently organizing to propose legislation to ban preschool to second grade suspension and expulsions.
