- Opportunities Suspended: The Disparate Impact of Disciplinary Exclusion from School
- The first in an ongoing series of national studies by the Center for Civil Rights Remedies at the Civil Right Project.
- Out of School and Off Track: The Overuse of Suspensions in American Middle and High Schools
- In this first of a kind breakdown of data from over 26,000 U.S. middle and high schools, CRP researchers estimate that well over two million students were suspended during the 2009-2010 academic year. This means that one out of every nine secondary school students was suspended at least once during that year. As other studies demonstrate, the vast majority of suspensions are for minor infractions of school rules, such as disrupting class, tardiness, and dress code violations, rather than for serious violent or criminal behavior. serious incidents are rare and result in expulsions, which are not covered by this report.
