LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Violence in local classrooms. More former teachers are coming forward, worried about the state of JCPS schools. Some students and teachers say they don't feel safe.
The district says since August, 4,672 students have been suspended. That’s a 6.5% increase over the same time last year. But spokeswoman Bonnie Hackbarth says the number of days students have been suspended is down. However, the district outright refuses to kick anyone out of school.
Coming up Monday at 6 and 10, WDRB's Valerie Chinn investigates why, and what the district says it's doing to solve the problem of safety in the classroom.
