Disproportionality in School Discipline in Massachusetts
Gastic, Billie
Education and Urban Society, v49 n2 p163-179 Feb 2017
The racial discipline gap--the finding that Black and Latino students are more likely to be disciplined at school than White students, and often more harshly--has implications for students' academic success. This study concluded that differences in students' behavior do not fully explain the disproportionate likelihood that Black students are disciplined for fighting at school. Black students were found to be significantly more likely than White students to be cited for physical fights in schools.
