Suspensions in School Discipline.
Kaeser, Susan C.
Education and Urban Society, v11 n4 p465-84 Aug 1979
Suspension, although it temporarily alleviates a difficult situation, does little to change behavior or solve the underlying causes of misbehavior. Furthermore, suspension has been found to be used disproportionately against Black students, thus depriving them of access to education. Schools should evaluate their own practices and seek new alternatives. (RLV)
