Study: Fewer suspensions can lead to better attendance rates and test scores

from Education DIVE

The efforts at reform discipline policies and practices that began in the Obama-era were designed to correct reported racial inequities in the way harsher punishments, such as out-of-school suspensions and expulsions, were meted out. Since that time, research on the effect of these policies has been sparse and contradictory. The studies also sometimes fail logically. For instance, reducing the number of out-of-school suspensions, by definition, must increase school attendance rates because students are in school more often. Sound in-school suspension policies, however, can allow students to make the most of their time away from their regular classroom settings. more
