Steve Scher talks with Katie Mosehauer, executive director of Washington Appleseed, about proposed changes to school discipline policies in Washington state public schools. The state government passed a law in September that would limit almost all suspensions and expulsions to, at maximum, one year.

There will be a public hearing on the changes on May 5, 2014, from 10 a.m. — 12 p.m. at the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction in Olympia.
