Abstract

Regrettably, students of color are receiving different and harsher disciplinary punishments than whites for the same or similar infractions, and they are disproportionately impacted by zero-tolerance policies—a fact that only serves to exacerbate already deeply entrenched disparities in many communities.

(Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Justice, September 27, 2010)
