A bill targeting South Carolina's school-to-prison-pipeline, including the disturbing-schools law, clears House subcommittee
"A bill that would create a study committee charged with reviewing South Carolina's juvenile justice laws, including the controversial disturbing-schools statute, cleared its first legislative hurdle Thursday morning.
Dubbed the "Stop the School House to Jail House Pipeline Act," House Bill 3055, co-sponsored by Reps. Leola Robinson-Simpson, D-Greenville, and Bill Clyburn, D-Aiken, was given the green light by the Criminal Laws Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.
The bill tasks a committee composed of 10 members from the Senate and the House with making recommendations to the General Assembly on ways to divert more juveniles from the criminal justice system."
