The Every Student Matters (ESM) Campaign is the first student-led policy advocacy campaign being organized by the BHC Youth Committee. The ESM campaign is focused in promoting practices, policies, and programs in the Long Beach Unified School District that helps students stay in school and graduate on time. The campaign seeks to work in partnership with LBUSD leaders, educators, parents and students to promote a positive school climate and proactive alternatives to punitive exclusionary discipline practices that currently remove students from the classroom and school. We seek to foster school discipline practices that address the root causes of behavioral issues, restore justice, and put students on a path to success.
