School suspensions: Does racial bias feed the school-to-prison pipeline?

edited April 2013 in R & R (Religion and Race)
High rates of suspensions and expulsions for certain groups – particularly African-Americans, Hispanics, and those with disabilities – are evident in data gathered nationally by the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR).

Data from 72,000 American public schools in the 2009-10 school year, for example, show that while African-Americans make up 18 percent of the students in this large sample, they account for 46 percent of students suspended more than once, 39 percent of students expelled, and 36 percent of students arrested on campus.

White students, by contrast, represent 29 percent of multiple suspensions and 33 percent of expulsions – but 51 percent of the students.

    Suspend them, if they are doing bad and won't do anything right then you going have to suspend them point blank. We have zero tolerance policy and I made it through just fine and dandy.
