Race and School Discipline: How Inequity Impacts Students

 

Students and schools benefit from consistent, firm and fair school discipline. Yet a growing body of research demonstrates how schools across the U.S. often use punishment excessively—particularly exclusionary punishments, like school suspension. Students of color are more likely to receive these punishments even when demonstrating similar behaviors as white students.

 

Join Aaron Kupchik to learn about racial disproportionality in school punishment and the resulting harms to students and schools. Using results from his ongoing research, Kupchik will explain racial disproportionality in school punishment by considering how a legacy of racialized violence in the southeastern U.S. relates to rates of corporal punishment for students of color.

 

Kupchik is a professor and the director of graduate studies in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice. His research focuses on the punishment of youth in schools, courts and correctional facilities.
