Barrington school suspension fight — from the lunch room to the courtroom
How the Barrington School Committee ended up in a lengthy battle vs. a young student, his parents, the ACLU and the Rhode Island Dept. of Education
The Barrington School District is suing the state’s highest educational authority, as well as one of its own families, in a third attempt to prove that it properly suspended four middle school students in the winter of 2018. The district already lost this case twice but is refusing to abide by rulings of the Rhode Island Department of Education and the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education.
