New analysis of the Civil Rights
Data Collection (CRDC) finds that black
students and students with disabilities remain more likely to receive
out-of-school suspensions, despite overall declines. The 2018 CRDC data mark
the first time school-level reports of out-of-school suspension were available
from every public school in the nation for three years (school years 2011-12,
2013-14, and 2015-16).
Key: Dottedlines = Average percentage of schools in that state with more than 1 out of school suspension
Solid lines = Average percentage of schools in US with more than 1 out of school suspension
Blue shading = State has a lower average than the US as a whole
Red shading = State has a higher average than the US as a whole
