ILLINOIS -- A bill allowing schools to suspend or expel students convicted of certain felonies passed the Illinois House. The bill would let the school transfer the student to another district or alternative school if the student was charged with a violent felony. It would be difficult for schools to expel students if the crime did not take place at school and was not school-related. The bill now goes to the Senate.
