Addressing Disproportionality in School Discipline

Sep 26, 2021 | Discipline

BIPOC, male and disabled students are all too often disproportionately subjected to discipline in schools.

After examining its statistics, Dallas Independent School District decided to take a different approach. Instead of in-school and out-of-school suspensions, the Texas district now sends students down the hall to “reset centers” where they are supported by trained staff and mental health clinicians.

Students are happy with the change and other districts are calling to learn more.
