California schools will no longer be able to suspend students in elementary or middle school for "willful defiance" beginning in 2020.

NPR education reporter Anya Kamenetz (@anya1anya) joins host Tonya Mosley to examine the motivation behind the state's suspension ban and visit a school in Los Angeles that's replaced suspension with mindfulness.

This segment aired on November 25, 2019.
