About this item

Thisedited volume fills a critical void by providing the most current andauthoritative information on what is known about disciplinary disparities. School exclusion—out-of-school suspensionand expulsion in particular—remains a substantial component of discipline inour nation’s schools, and those consequences continue to fall disproportionallyon certain groups of learners. The negative consequences of frequent andinequitable use of school exclusion are substantial, including higher rates ofacademic failure, dropout, and contact with the juvenile justice system.  As educators, policymakers, communityleaders, and other youth-serving organizations begin the difficult work ofcreating more equitable school disciplinary systems, the need for effectivedisparity-reducing alternatives could not be more important. Drawing onthe multi-year ground-breaking work of the Discipline DisparitiesCollaborative, the chapters in this book provide cutting edge knowledgesupporting a new national imperative to eliminate race, gender, disability andsexual orientation-based disciplinary disparities.
