On June 26th, Assemblymember Roger Dickinson was the host to a bridge building event by the organization “Talk it Out: A Community Conversation to Fix School Discipline”, featuring a dramatic reading of a new play called Willful. The play was performed by students, community members and professional actors, with a focus on the current debate over the excessive use of “willful defiance” in school suspensions and expulsions.
