Disproportionate student discipline rising
SACRAMENTO – (INT) - State School Superintendent Tony Thurmond is addressing the rise of disproportionate discipline while providing support to students when they need it.

His office says that discipline rates are increasing, especially for African American and Native American students and students with disabilities.

Thurmond’s efforts will include guidance to local educational agencies (LEAs), webinars to highlight best practices in reducing disproportionate suspensions, and a tip line to report incidents of school districts engaging in disciplinary practices that violate the California Education Code or mask the actual rate of discipline.
