Abstract/Description

Students with disabilities are more than twice as likely as their non-disabled peers to be subjected to disciplinary removal. This removal had dramatic effects on student outcomes which have increased absenteeism, decreased graduation rates, and higher likelihood of interactions with the juvenile justice system. However, in the face of disproportionate exclusion of students with special needs and overt negative impacts educators continue to use suspension as a regular educational practice. This study attempts to shed light on why we continue to suspend and what factors tip the scale.
