EDITORIAL: Discipline effort a good step, but more is needed

The effort by the Bibb County school system to rein in discipline is a good start. The plan is to open a Professional Learning Center at the Hutchings Career Center that will give students who have fallen behind at least one grade a chance to catch up. Students who have fallen behind are more likely to be the troublemakers in class. The number of in-school and out-of-school suspensions in the Bibb system last year -- 14,600 -- is astounding, even if you know the bulk of those suspensions come from 5,700 students, many of them repeat offenders.
