What if an education law passed, but nobody followed it? That appears to be the bizarre situation in Arkansas, which in 2013 enacted a straightforward law banning out-of-school suspensions for truancy. But three years later, nearly 1,100 students were still suspended for not showing up to school. Many Arkansas schools were simply not complying with the law, according to a new study. What happened? It’s not entirely clear, but a communication breakdown may be to blame.
