SACRAMENTO – (INT) – California’s public school students are becoming better behaved.

The number of students suspended and expelled has declined for the fifth year in a row.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson attributed the improvement to educators using more engaging instruction and effective discipline.
