The lead researcher of the study goes on to say
Pearman also advises parents, teachers and school leaders to pay attention to disparities at their child’s school. “If your district has higher suspension rates for students of color than it does for white students, it’s likely that it is also failing to meet the academic needs of its students of color as well as it does its white students,” he said. “Similarly, if your district is struggling to meet the academic needs of students of color, then it will likely have a racial discipline problem.”So again, we blame the nice classroom teachers, who are about the only people in this situation who are actually trying to help. Because we dare not look at the real cause.
