Baltimore suspension bonus policy fails

Shouldn't school get bonuses based on student learning and not on keeping students who break rules and disrupt the other students that are at school to learn? ("City trying bonuses to cut rate of suspension," Jan. 15).

What about those times when a student who should have been suspended comes to school and does something violent? This is just another case that shows how poor the leadership of Baltimore's school system is performing and how unqualified these people are to be in these positions.
