Jersey Jazzman (aka Mark Weber) has a question that he hopes will be asked at John King’s confirmation hearings.

If King is confirmed as Secretary of Education, will he enforce the Department’s strong stance against suspensions as a disciplinary tool?

Normally, the question might not come up. But King has a record of leading “no excuses”charter schools known for their high rates of suspensions. The charter school he led in Massachusete had the second highest suspension rate in the state.

As Secretary, will he change the Department’s stand against suspensions? Or will he reverse himself?
