Airs Sunday, September 18, at 6 p.m. Kids who are suspended or expelled from school are more likely to drop out and more likely to wind up in prison than kids with similar behaviors who are not kicked out. Schools are struggling to reduce suspensions and to find other ways to make sure classrooms are calm and safe. We visit St. Paul, where parents and teachers complain that kids who should be disciplined are disrupting classrooms and causing chaos.

SHREVEPORT LITTLE THEATRE -  It has survived the Great Depression,  World War II,  and two major fires;  but the Shreveport Little Theatre lived up to the saying:  "The show must go on!".   It opens its 95th season this week with the comedic parody: "The Butler Did It".  The show started off on a scary note as the leading lady suffered an aneurysm during rehearsals and a new lead had just two weeks to learn the part.  For season and ticket information,  go to: http://shreveportlittletheatre.com
