Report: School suspensions widen achievement gap

In 2011-2012, nearly 3.5 million students were suspended from public schools at least once, says the institute's new report, "Are We Closing the School Discipline Gap?"

Some 16 percent of black students were suspended, compared to 5 percent of white students. more
