New York City school suspensions, arrests continue to drop
from New York Daily News
The number of city school kids suspended and arrested continues to drop, according to data. Suspensions dropped by 15.6 percent, from 44,626 in the 2014-2015 school year to 37,647 in the 2015-2016 school year, the city Education Department said. The drop is due to several factors, including the expansion of "therapeutic crisis interventions," as well as the addition of 250 guidance counselors over the last two years and 100 mental health consultants this year, DOE officials said.
