No research shows that suspensions teach kids the social skills they need to keep them from getting tossed out of school in the first place. None. Suspensions label a kid “bad,” which often becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy, even a badge of honor. Students who already experience failure at school welcome a few days' vacation on the couch with a TV.

Maya Raulic's comment, March 18, 2013 8:11 PM
A research brief, “The Public Costs of Teen Childbearing” reports that mothers having their first child at age 17 or younger cost the United States $8.63 billion annually. This shows us how much money and help is given to teen moms. Blaming teens for being pregnant pushes them away from resources and help but teen moms deserve and need this. Everyone has a different reason for getting pregnant as a teen and most of the time it is not purposeful so there is no reason not to offer teens help.
