No real progress on racism and ableism in school discipline

There’s a new report out from the GAO showing that for 2013-14 (the most recent data), black and disabled kids are penalized heavily and disproportionately in schools, nationwide. Boys and poor kids also disproportionately disciplined.

Read the full report here. I’ll be digging in later today to see the more complicated data when they combine factors (race + poverty, poverty + disability, etc.).
