Equal Education for All?

The Civil Rights Data Collection sample, published by the U.S. Department of Education, has found that African American students experience disparities in all dimensions of school life; including discipline, achievement, resources and support.  One finding from the study states that African American boys and girls are more than 3 ½ times more likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers.

The study has prompted civil rights leaders to request that the federal government take immediate steps to address the systemic discrimination in America’s public schools. For more information, click here.
