The bill for safer schools makes it easier for school districts to suspend and expel students who exhibit disruptive and violent behaviors.

Alternate programs are provided for students who've been expelled before they turn into hardcore criminals.

The bill's sponsor is Kansas City Democrat Steve McLuckie
