This petition matters if you believe that all students can expect to attend public schools without fear of being labeled as having abnormal "special needs" because some educators and school counselors don't want to deal with core issues that affects so many inner city black male students such as cycles of poverty, excessive black on black crime, school administrators suspending them at whim, some parents manipulating educators to get SSI checks,etc. Do we maintain a pipeline to the prisons for these students or try to reach one, teach one for all students?
