Study May Explain the Nation's Growing Racial Achievement Gap

While the social science community has understood the potential impact of a racial achievement gap for decades, its root causes and mechanisms have not been clearly defined. The unique data collected and the uncommon analysis presented by Morris and Perry postulate that racially disparate and exclusionary discipline (suspension and expulsion) in the schools is a critical, understudied factor in racial differences in educational achievement and success later in life. Research suggests that African-American students are three times as likely as white students to be academically suspended. Nationwide, one in six African-American students in public schools have been suspended at least once. In a comparison of suspended and never-suspended students, the suspended group fell nearly five grade levels behind in only two years.
