Vandever, Thomas R.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v87 n4 p430-34 Jan 1983
Random sampling showed that educable mentally retarded (EMR) students were no more likely to be suspended than nonretarded students. Comparison of suspended EMR and nonretarded (median age 13 years) students indicated that nonretarded students were more likely to be suspended for drug and alcohol-related offenses and other disruptive behavior.
