There are calls to reform the disciplinary system in the Columbus City Schools.
Hundreds of people turned out last night for a forum at the state fairgrounds, demanding the schools and courts team up to fix what they call a "school to prison pipeline." The group called BREAD (Building Responsibility Equality and Dignity) organized the event. The group says 26-thousand suspensions were handed down in the district last year, leading many students to drop out and turn to crime. The group is proposing the creation of a restorative justice program that links youth offenders to other students and teachers to solve their problems.
