    Diversity is Chaos: Black students, especially boys, face much harsher discipline in public schools than other students

    Although black students made up only 18% of those enrolled in the schools sampled, they accounted for 35% of those suspended once, 46% of those suspended more than once and 39% of all expulsions. One in five black boys and more than one in 10 black girls received an out-of-school suspension. Over all, black students were three and a half times as likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers. And in districts that reported expulsions under zero-tolerance policies, Hispanic and black students represent 45% of the student body, but 56% of those expelled under such policies. According to the schools’ reports, over 70% of the students involved in school-related arrests or referred to law enforcement were Hispanic or black.

    Wonder why,may-be because they deserve it and act like idiots ? So all you white guys start acting up in school more ,ok so we can balance this shit out ,damn it.....:clap2: obama is pissed about this......

    why do people think it is discrimination when blacks are found to commit more infractions? Toronto, Canada had to drop its zero tolerance policy in their schools because blacks were massively over represented in diciplinary cases and they would rather lower standards than be seen as racist in any way.

    blacks have the same problems anywhere in the world, not just in the USA. I feel sorry for the kids who have to put up black aggressive behaviour on the one hand because schools dont want to 'catch them'. and excessive dicipline for minor offences to even up the scoreboard on the other hand.

    There is no such thing as "harsh discipline" in schools, what a joke. Suspending a student doesn't do anything because they act like their on vacation when their parents or whoever is at work during the day.
