Many in New Hampshire have become concerned over the rise of expulsions and suspensions. Not only are the reason for these suspensions expanding, they say, but taking a kid out of school may not be the most effective punishment.

  • Ted Comstock: Executive Director & General Counsel for the New Hampshire School Boards Association
  • Ellen Fineberg: Executive Director of the Children’s Alliance of NH

  • Barbara Wauchope: Director of the Carsey Institute’s Evaluation Program and a Research Associate Professor at the University of New Hampshire. She is the co-author (along with Ellen Fineberg) of a 2009 report on student discipline in NH
