Broward County ended out-of-school suspensions several years ago — an approach that Miami-Dade will adopt this year as well. At Pine Ridge Education Center in Fort Lauderdale, Principal Belinda Hope talks with teachers Geraldine Bartelle and Laura Kolo about Broward’s “PROMISE” program, which aims to keep students out of trouble while being disciplined for bad behavior. It stands for Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Support & Education.
