KUNM Call In Show 8/25 8a: 

Students are back in classrooms across New Mexico. In the coming year, teachers and administrators will have to make decisions about how to discipline students. Is discipline fair in school districts across the state? Are all students treated the same when they are disciplined? Do you have concerns about how your children or grandchildren are being disciplined during the school day? How can we ensure that punishment in schools is equitable, particularly for students of color and students with disabilities? 


Tonight’s episode of Public Square on NMPBS at 7p looks at the benefits of linking schools with the communities they serve. Panelists include Highland High School Principal Marco Harris and Community Engagement Coordinator Janyce Cardenas from Wilson Middle School. In this segment of the discussion, hosted by Megan Kamerick, panelists describe how community schools provide needed support and services to students and their families.
