On July 1st, many new laws went into effect in Florida.
One of the new laws directly impacts juvenile crime in Florida. The law requires that school boards all over the state relax their zero-tolerance policies as it concerns student discipline. The law tells the boards only to call the police on students that pose a serious risk to the safety of other students. Before the law went into effect, boards would expel or call the police even on minor offenses. The goal of this law is to direct kids away from the criminal juvenile system.
