National study shows African Americans more likely to be suspended

logo-frontAfrican American students in the United States are much more likely to get suspended than white students, according to a report released recently by the Center for Civil Rights Remedies at the Civil Rights Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles.

The report, “Opportunities Suspended: The Disparate Impact of Disciplinary Exclusion From School,” was based on analysis of Federal government suspension-related data from the 2009-10 school year for kindergarten through 12th grade. The breakdown of nearly 7,000 districts found that 17 percent of African American students received an out-of-school suspension compared to about 5 percent of white students. The comparable rate for Latinos was 7 percent.
