Organization: The Equity Project at Indiana University

Created by the Discipline Disparities Research to Practice Collaborative and the Equity Project at Indiana University, this resource explores key policy recommendations to reduce disparities in school discipline. The report finds that children are removed from school too often for minor rule-breaking; excessive exclusion harms some groups more than others; the harm is more extensive and expensive than most realize and school factors contribute to disparities. It offers effective and promising alternatives to exclusionary discipline as well as Federal and State Policy recommendations.

The Discipline Disparities Research to Practice Collaborative, a group of 26 nationally known researchers, educators, advocates, and policy analysts, came together to address the problem of disciplinary disparities. A culminating report of the Collaborative’s work is the formal release of the Discipline Disparities Briefing Paper Series, three papers on policy, practice, and new research summarizing the state of our knowledge and offering practical, evidence-based recommendations for reducing disparities in discipline in our nation’s schools.
