Research shows that getting suspended or expelled increases students’ risk for falling into unproductive behavior. Because students of color, males and those from low-income backgrounds are suspended in disproportionate numbers, schools need to take measures that don't impede academic success.

AIR will host a discussion of positive approaches to school discipline with an expert panel holding decades of experience in research and practice. Join us to learn about new information on the relationship between keeping students in school and improved academic outcomes and to explore disciplinary policies that don't dampen student achievement.
