Not Measuring Up: The State of School Discipline in Massachusetts

New report from The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice
“Not Measuring Up: The State of School Discipline in Massachusetts”

Not Measuring Up analyzes Massachusetts’ most recent school discipline data and finds that students of color, students with disabilities, and charter school students in Massachusetts are disproportionately likely to be suspended, particularly for minor misbehavior. Massachusetts’ new school discipline law went into effect this school year, and the report’s findings are intended to help measure how well the new law is being followed.
