Discriminatory Discipline: Trends and Issues
Whitford, Denise K.; Katsiyannis, Antonis; Counts, Jennifer
NASSP Bulletin, v100 n2 p117-135 Jun 2016
Discriminatory discipline has been widely documented for decades, yet little progress has been made to narrow the gap. Due to the long-standing history of discriminatory discipline, current nationwide data, and recent federal initiatives, there is a need for a comprehensive examination of this critical issue. Therefore, we discuss populations effected by discriminatory discipline, including students of color and students in special education. Research indicates that prevention and intervention efforts that begin at the administrative level are necessary.
