Missouri In-School Suspension Programs: A Descriptive Study of the Rationale, Structure, Common Usage and Success in Reducing the Number of Suspensions.
Johnson, Arthur O., Jr.
A study of the inschool suspension programs of twenty-five junior and senior high schools in Missouri with enrollments of 1,000 or more revealed that the programs have similar rationales and structures, have no total shared responsibility for the program between the central office and school administration, need to clarify the reasons for and type of suspensions assigned, were not in common usage, and successfully reduced the number of suspensions. Pertinent literature is discussed in the documentation of the study, several programs are described, and the questionnaire used to gather the study data is presented and the responses to it analyzed.
