Equity in School Discipline

Page history last edited by Jessica Daily 7 years, 4 months ago

"Disproportionate representation in discipline practices (race/ethnicity and students with disabilities) is one of the most significant problems in education today (Gregory, Skiba, & Noguera, 2010; U.S. Government Accountability Office, 2013)" (McIntosh, et al., 2014).  


"Given the well-documented negative effects of exclusionary discipline on a range of student outcomes (American Academy of Pediatrics Council on School Health, 2013), educators must address the issue by identifying rates of discipline disproportionality, taking steps to reduce it, and monitoring the effects of intervention on disproportionality.  Disproportionality in exclusionary discipline blocks us from the overall objective of promoting positive outcomes for all students" (McIntosh, et al., 2014).
