New report shows significant racial disparities among students suspended in Nassau schools
The report comes as the Education Trust-New York, a research and advocacy group found that in 2016-17, 15.6% of black males were removed from their high schools at least once.
“Sadly, it’s not surprising to any of us who are involved in the African-American community and involved in this work,” said Retha Fernandez, Project Director of the Urban League of Long Island.
The Education Trust report also found that suspensions tended to run highest in districts with large numbers of economically disadvantaged students.
