ABSTRACT
The article presents evidence of cases showing significant racial disparities in U.S. public school discipline. Data is presented, as released by the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights in March 2012, based on studies conducted in 72,000 public schools across the U.S. The study points out that African American students accounted for the greatest number of suspensions and expulsions in the surveyed schools. African American students comprised 18 percent of the school population.
