Students of color with disabilities are being pushed into the school-to-prison pipeline, study finds

Exclusionary discipline practices in K-12 schools—suspension, expulsion and other disciplinary actions that take a student away from the classroom—raise the chances that a student will repeat a grade, drop out or end up in the criminal justice system.
