Transforming Discipline in Dallas ISD


“We have all these tools, devices, curriculum– why would I ever suspend a student again?”

That’s the question posed by Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa in our new video. In it, Supt. Hinojosa is joined by Texas Appleseed’s Andrew Hairston, former board trustee Miguel Solis, and Dallas parent Lakashia Wallace to discuss how Dallas ISD banned suspensions across all grades– and why.

“We have fought so hard for so many years,” says Wallace, “And now someone [is] finally paying attention and understanding what we were saying.”
