Texas Zero Tolerance is a group of individuals who are attempting to change state law in regard to what many call “zero tolerance” policies.
We were successful in 2005 in assisting legislators to help begin to turn the tide but this past session yielded nothing. Unfortunately the parents and children of Texas will have to wait until at least 2009 before relief may come.
In the meantime, we are collecting individual cases to help to build a case that reform is desperately needed. Your input and stories help us to do just that. I know, it is little solace to you but that’s all we can accomplish together.
It must be stressed here that we cannot help on individual cases. We are not lawyers. As much as we want to get involved there is simply not enough time in the day to do so. If you feel you need assistance, we can offer suggestions based upon what other families have done but no more.
We are sorry that we can’t wave a magic wand over the heads of these administrators who tell us all that they are here for our children to make them use common sense.
