Study links suspension, expulsion to drug use
from Education DIVE
The researchers note that in general, a juvenile justice arrest is meant to be kept quiet, while being removed from school for disciplinary reasons is more "directly visible" and widely known among the school community and even potential employers. The findings also show that suspension and expulsion were more predictive of later drug use for minority students. Among students who were suspended or expelled, females were more likely to use drugs during adolescence, while males were more likely to use drugs as adults.
