New Resources Addressing School Discipline Policies

The U.S. Departments of Education and Justice released http://www.ed.gov/news/press-releases/educators-gather-white-house-rethink-school-discipline some new resources to rethink discipline in schools. Addressing the Root Cause of School Discipline Disparities, Rethink School Discipline: Resource Guide for Superintendent Action, and Support for State and Local Educational Leaders and Partners from Other Systems will help school leaders decrease suspension and expulsion rates and create safer and more supportive learning environments for all. The departments cited research http://ocrdata.ed.gov/Downloads/CRDC-School-Discipline-Snapshot.pdf from the federal government's Civil Rights Data Collection, which noted that more than 3 million students receive suspension or expulsion as discipline each year. Suspensions and expulsions can facilitate higher drop-out rates, entrance into the juvenile justice system, and untimely graduation.
