Second Chances: a short documentary on suspension

SecondChangesOver 50,000 young people are suspended in Maryland each year. 41% of these suspensions are for misbehavior such as falling asleep in class, school uniform violation or talking back to teachers. Additionally, for every one White student that is suspended in Maryland, three African American students are suspended. Students in Wide Angle Youth Media’s Design Team and Mentoring Video Project collaborated to create Second Chances, a short documentary on the topic of suspension in Maryland.
