School Disciplinaries

This research analyzes the school discipline data, controlling for the exhibited behavior used to justify discipline. Our goal is to better understand just what behaviors were demonstrated that motivated school disciplinaries but to also engage the key stakeholders in this process. We evaluate the Race/Ethnicity of student and teacher, Campus Type, Grade Level, Gender, Economic Disadvantage and Reasons for Suspension of each student disciplined. To better understand the nature of multiple suspensions and the ability of suspensions to deter delinquent behavior, we also examine the degree and extent to which multiple suspensions exist.
