Illinois House Passes New School Safety Rules

Illinois State Capitol
Illinois State Capitol

Lawmakers in the Illinois House have passed a new bill in an effort to help schools protect their students. 

The proposed legislature would allow schools to suspend or expel students who have felony charges pending or have been convicted of certain felonies. 

Many states already have laws giving such power to school boards and administrators. 

However currently in Illinois it very difficult for a student to be expelled if crime didn’t occur on school grounds or was not school related, regardless of the offense.
