Suspensions and Expulsions

What is this section about?

Rates of student suspension and expulsion can provide a window into potential disciplinary biases based on race and other identities. Though disciplinary actions are typically subject to district-by-district policies and procedures (and unique incident and student details), evidence of unequal suspension and expulsion decisions are relevant to discussions around alternative disciplinary measures.
