The Center for Civil Rights Remedies' report reveals unusually high levels of risk for suspension as well as the stark differences in discipline when these risks are presented by race, gender and disability status.

The following stories feature coverage and responses to the Civil Rights Project's Center for Civil Rights Remedies April 10, 2012 report, "Suspended Education in California." The report describes a hidden crisis for many historically disadvantaged subgroups in too many districts and a widespread need to reform discipline policy for California’s public schools.
