Hi have to do a mock testimony for a state house bill. The bill proposes that "the state board of education shall establish a pilot program authorizing up to three local school administrative units to create appropriate alternative learning programs to serve students who have been suspended for more than 10 days or expelled, including students with disabilities who have been placed on homebound instruction for discipline purposes. Appropriate alternative learning programs may include, but are not limited to, a school within a school, effective in-school programs, collaborative treatment, and community-based off-site programs".
I need sources from think tanks or philanthropic or research organizations (such as Kaiser Foundation, Children's Defense Fund, Annie E. Casey Foundation, etc). Problem is I don't know what foundations are out there and I am having a hard time googling. Any help with finding foundations supporting/researching alternative programs for discipline-problem kids? I need a little more than just general education foundations.
Any help would be appreciated.
