The Center on Race and Social Problems is delighted to announce publication of a new report on school discipline in Pittsburgh - demonstrating glaring racial disparities in out-of-school suspension rates.  The consequences of out-of-school suspensions include negative outcomes in academic, social and economic spheres - not just for students but also for their families and the broader community.  Alternative models of discipline must be explored.   Download your copy of the report here.
